Due to the magnitude of the damage from Ida, you can move debris from your private property to public rights-of-way for pick up and removal by local governments for a limited time. Debris removal from private property is generally the responsibility of the property owner, just as before the hurricane. Follow guidance from your local officials when placing debris for collection. Separate debris into six categories when disposing along the curb: ➡️ Electronics, such as televisions, computers, or phones. ➡️ Large appliances, such as refrigerators, washers, dryers, stoves, or dishwashers. Be sure to seal or secure the doors so that they are not accessible. ➡️ Hazardous waste, such as oil, batteries, pesticides, paint, or cleaning supplies. If you suspect that materials contain lead-based paint, keep them moist or place the materials in plastic bags so that the paint does not become airborne. ➡️ Vegetative debris, such as tree branches, leaves, or plants. ➡️ Construction debris, such as drywall, lumber, carpet, or furniture; and ➡️ Household garbage, discarded food, paper, or packaging. Place debris away from trees, poles, or structures including fire hydrants and meters. Remove all water-damaged materials from your home and place curbside for pickup. Debris should not block the roadway.
