Monday starts final round of Isaac debris pickup

Oct 5, 2012

State crews will make a last pass to pick up Hurricane Isaac debris in southeast Louisiana starting Monday.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development says this will be the third and final pass for debris removal in Jefferson, Lafourche, Orleans, St. Charles, and Terrebonne parishes and inside the levee system for St. Bernard and Plaquemines parishes.

Storm debris should be separated into two piles — one for vegetative debris and the other for demolition debris. Household appliances should be placed separately and to the side.

So far over 283,000 cubic yards of debris has been picked up from roadways.
