City of DeRidder final vegetative debris pickup Nov. 30
DeRidder Director of Public Works Tommy Landry has announced that Nov. 30 will see the final pass for vegetative debris in a press release.
"As the City continues with the second pass of vegetative debris removal, I would like to, once again, thank everyone for their patience," the release read. "Our City has come a long way in a short period of time, and the cooperation from the public has been outstanding. Thank you."
The final pass for vegetative debris will begin Nov. 30. The city is asking that citizens get all hurricane-related debris out to the right-of-way.
Hedge and tree trimmings, cut fence lines and bushes are not considered hurricane debris and will not be picked up by the city's contracted debris company, Graham County Land.
The company is in the process of picking up the construction and demolition debris that is in the right-of-way, Landry said. If they have picked up some of your debris, but not all of it, you should push what is left safely into the right-of-way.
The city said that the debris company must stay on the roadway. If they cannot reach the debris, they cannot pick it up.
So far, the debris removed includes 316,255 cubic yards of vegetative debris and 3,607 cubic yards of construction and emolition debris
