NOTICE: (PLEASE SHARE!) FLOOD DEBRIS COLLECTION CONCLUDES THIS FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30!

Flood-affected residents within the City of Lafayette and unincorporated areas of the parish must move all flood-related debris to the curb or public right-of-way in time for this last collection on Friday.

Citizens within the City of Lafayette or unincorporated areas of the parish who feel they may have been missed should call the Public Works Dispatch BEFORE FRIDAY at 337-291-8517.

All flood-related debris must be placed BY FRIDAY at the curb or right-of-way so the mechanical boom arms on the collection trucks can reach materials for pick up.

New construction or renovation debris is the responsibility of private contractors and is not eligible for this flood related debris collection.

The flood debris contractor is picking up furniture, construction materials, household hazardous waste, large appliances and electronics. As a reminder:

• Flood affected residents are asked to combine debris piles with neighbors where possible

• Segregating household hazardous waste from other flood debris will speed up the process

• Flood debris should be placed near the street on the public right-of-way

• All debris should be clear of ditches

• For safety reasons, refrigerator and freezer doors must be secured with duct tape

• Do not place debris next to fire hydrants, water meters or electric pedestals; doing so will inhibit access by LUS should an emergency service issue arise

• Place debris at least three feet from mailboxes, trees, electrical and telephone poles

• Republic Services customers should place recycling and regular household garbage in the appropriate cart

The debris collection service contracted by Lafayette Consolidated Government (LCG) has been operating for 37 days, from sunup to sundown for nearly seven days a week, with as many as 13 trucks with double trailers. Almost 66,000 cubic yards of flood debris and more than 14 tons of electronic waste have been collected.

Again -- citizens within the City of Lafayette or unincorporated areas of the parish who feel they may have been missed should call the Public Works Dispatch BEFORE FRIDAY at 337-291-8517. #RecoveringTogether
