Trash / Debris Guidelines

As recovery continues the parish is finding problems with debris placement:
  • Please be mindful of fire hydrants and do NOT place debris near or on them.
  • Please separate your debris from your regular garbage. If Coastal Waste cannot reach your perishable garbage because it is placed under debris, there will be a smell.
  • DO NOT stack debris near or on top of fire hydrants and/or water meters.

Are the maps for power in St. Charles parish updated? Have they powered any more areas on the Eastbank?

Maps are being updated continually. I'll post the time on that entry when the next ones come out.

Is there a location that we can bring our tree branches, leaves, twigs, etc to? With IKE on the way we certainly wouldn't want to leave that loose stuff out in front only to be picked up by the fierce winds and do more damage to homes.

Parts of Destrehan has not had garbage pick up since the Wed before the storm. While other parts, ie. Ormond has had it twice since then. I called the contractor 3 times today, of course no answer. My questions are who designs the routes and why they didn't pick up where they left off last Saturday? and also, if they don't pick up regular garbarge until they pick up the storm debris on Monday, will they try to charge the parish extra fees? I hope the parish government is monitoring this, bbecause the contractor could abuse the parish.

Yesterday there were debris clearing trucks down Murray Hill in Destrehan lste evening. But they were doing nothing ,as a matter of fact i witnessed one worker sleeping behind a truck and another one in the next truck sleeping.Today at around 4:30 pm the street was loaded down with around a dozen trucks and when I returned about an hour later . Trucks were gone but debris never budged . WHAT IS GOING ON ?

VANS LANE IN NEW SARPY IS VERY NARROW AND THE DEBRI ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD MAKES IT VERY HARD TO PASS ANOTHER CAR. EACH DAY THE PILES GET BIGGER WITH NO PICK UP IN SITE. IT WILL NOT BE LONG BEFORE THE DITCHES WILL BE FILLED WITH DEBRI AND THEN DRAINAGE WILL BE A PROBLEM
