Lafayette Parish Storm Debris Sorting and Collection

Monitor progress and reference zones, truck locations and areas where crews have removed debris 

Because area landfills are permitted to accept certain materials, not all flood debris is taken to the same location. Properly separating items allows crews to determine where debris will be taken, and it helps pickup happen in a timelier manner.

Items should not be placed in bags and should be separated into the following categories:

  • Electronics: Television, computer, stereo, phone, DVD player
  • Large Appliances :Refrigerator, washer/dryer, air conditioner, stove, water heater, dishwasher
  • Hazardous Waste: Oil, battery, pesticide, paint, cleaning supplies, compressed gas
  • Vegetative Debris: Tree branches, leaves, logs, plants (May be placed in containers no bigger than 35 gallons which weigh less than 50 pounds)
  • Construction Debris: Building materials, drywall, lumber, carpet, furniture, plumbing
  • Household Garbage: Bagged garbage, food, paper, packaging

Debris placement guidelines from Lafayette Consolidated Government:

  • Place debris curbside.
  • Do not place near or on trees, poles, fire hydrants, meters or utilities.
  • Debris should not block roadway.
  • Debris placed on the sidewalk will not be picked up.
  • Secure appliance doors.
