Last chance for Ascension residents to sign up for hurricane debris pick-up
Debris pick-up from Hurricane Ida will soon wrap up in Ascension Parish.
The deadline to register for the final round of pick-ups is Monday, Oct. 25.
"We really do feel like we will complete all of the debris pick-up by the end of October," Ascension Parish Communication Director Martin McConnell said.
So far, the parish has picked up 320,000 cubic yards of debris. The pick-up crews are working seven days a week to get the job done.
"We are going to pick up every stick of debris that is in the parish," McConnell said.
