Final Pass for Hurricane Debris in Lake Charles Next Month
FEMA's hurricane debris removal program is coming to an end, and it will be making its final passes in Lake Charles next month.
Lake Charles city officials say the debris pickup program that began last fall has removed more than four million cubic yards of debris.
Residents within the Lake Charles city limits are asked to have all residential debris put to their curbs by Monday, May 17. During the collection process, city and contracted monitors will be making rounds through the city to make sure all debris is picked up before the project is deemed complete.
To make the collection process more efficient for contractors, residents are asked to create separate piles for appliances/white goods, electronics, vegetative debris, construction debris, and hazardous household waste.
If you have any questions or need to report debris that was missed, call 337-491-1346.
