A final pass for pick-up of flood debris will begin Monday, Jan. 9 and continue through Jan. 20. This will be the last pick up of debris through debris removal contractors in Ascension Parish.

The final pass will include only those addresses that have been entered into the PPDR program.

Ascension Parish Government is not authorized to pick up demolished homes through the Debris Removal Program or PPDR Program. Residents who plan to demolish their homes should arrange for removal of the debris through their insurance settlements or by other means.

Effective Jan. 7, the hotline to Tetra Tech for debris related questions will no longer be operational. Additionally, there will no longer be a representative in room 105 of the Parish Government Complex for debris operations.

After this date, any debris related questions should be directed to the Ascension Parish Department of Public Works at (225) 450-1013.
