Parish begins second phase of debris pickup

Staff reports

Ascension Parish’s vegetative debris pickup effort from Hurricane Gustav is near completion, according to a release from parish government.

A Department of Public Works official said that 95 percent of all parish right of way roads have received a first pass for vegetative pickup.

The second phase of Hurricane Gustav debris cleanup will begin Monday. This phase will include a second pass for vegetative debris and pickup of construction and demolition debris. 

DPW stressed in a release that this will be the only pass for construction and demolition debris.  The release also said vegetative debris must not be mixed within the same pile as the construction and demolition debris.
