LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - The Calcasieu Parish Police Jury is continuing it’s hurricane debris pickup with the second pass of their collection process.

Debris collection on parish roads will continue for a third pass after the second pass is finished. Parish officials will provide advance notice of the final pas so residents will have time to place any remaining storm debris on the roadside.

Parish contractors have already begun the process of inspecting parish roads to determine where debris will need to be collected.

To help expedite this process, the parish is asking residents to sort debris when placing them roadside. Separate piles should be made for vegetation, construction, appliances/white goods, electronics, and hazardous household waste.

Cities and towns within Calcasieu Parish are on different schedules for debris pickup based on their individual contracts.

The Parish Solid Waste Convenience Centers in Sulphur and Lake Charles are open but are only accepting residential waste until further notice. They are not open for contractors, vegetation, or construction/demolition debris. Trailers are also not being allowed.
