Officials say that residents living in unincorporated areas of the parish who are unable to bring storm debris to the Solid Waste Convenience Centers are encouraged to place items on the right-of-way of their property for collection.

Vegetative and non-vegetative debris should be separated and bundled into two different piles when possible.

Officials say that vegetative debris piles should not exceed 6-feet in length. In addition, limbs should not be larger than 4-inches in diameter.
