PRESS RELEASE: OCTOBER 5, 2020
DRC CONTRACTED WITH FOR HURRICANE LAURA DEBRIS REMOVAL
The Parish has signed a contract with DRC Emergency Services, LLC for the collection and removal of debris created from Hurricane Laura. DRC will begin collection in the rural and unincorporated areas of the Parish on Tuesday, October 6th. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the month. Residents who live inside the incorporated limits of a municipality should contact their municipality’s governing body for help with debris removal.
Residents should place debris piles in the public right away in front of their homes because DRC cannot go on to private property. Debris may be placed in ditches and along shoulders as long as the piles do not block public access to Parish roads.
Residents are asked to only place the following items out for debris pickup:
- Trees, limbs, and brush (NO bagged leaves)
All other debris materials, such as white goods and household waste, should continue to be taken to the landfill or one of the bin sites throughout the Parish.
For additional information about debris removal, please call 888-721-4DRC(4372). You may also contact the Parish Government at 318.352.2714.
