SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — The City of Shreveport’s Public Works team says it has concentrated its storm cleanup efforts in neighborhoods that were hit hardest by Hurricane Laura with downed trees.
Crews will continue to collect debris from the hardest-hit areas this week while also getting holiday garbage collection back on track, according to city officials.
The following bulk schedule will begin on Saturday, September 12th:
- September 12-16: Monday garbage routes. The collection area includes Highland and South
Broadmoor, which were among the hardest-hit areas.
- September 17- 23: Thursday garbage routes. The collection area includes MLK, North
Highland, and Jefferson Page Road.
- September 24 -30: Tuesday garbage routes. The collection area includes Cedar Grove, Southern
Hills, Spring Lake, and Southern Trace.
- October 1 -7: Friday garbage routes. The collection area includes Sunset Acres, Southern
Hills and Dean Road.
City officials say citizens should have debris on the street by the first date of the advertised cleanup for their area. Yard waste should be separated from other bulk pick-up items.
To remain in compliance with the City of Shreveport code of ordinances, yard waste should be cut into no longer than 6 feet in length and no more than 8 inches in diameter.
Trees cut by contractors need to be disposed of by the contractor and not put at the street for the City to pick up. Please go to shreveportla.gov to check out the schedule for your neighborhood.
