Debris Cleanup from June 26 Summer Storm Announced by City of Lake Charles

Lake Charles, Louisiana – The City of Lake Charles announced on June 27, 2022, that public works personnel are currently working to clean up debris from the summer storm that hit the area in the evening hours of Sunday, June 26, 2022. The public right of way is being cleared of downed limbs and trees by Solid Waste crews. Streets and drainage crews are sweeping streets and clearing catch basins throughout the city. There have been no reports of flooding as a result of yesterday’s event. As more rain is expected throughout the week, these crews will continue to monitor and clear areas throughout the city.

If a resident notices downed trees or limbs in the public right of way, the City said that they should call (337) 491-1220 to report the location.
Residents must cut and neatly stack limbs/trees or other vegetative debris on private property for collection on their regular trash and garbage collection day. Please do not leave debris in roadside ditches, on top of or near storm drains, or near utility boxes.

The property owner must dispose of all other non-vegetative debris, according to the City of Lake Charles. Two Solid Waste Convenience Centers are run by the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury. More information on these centers can be found by following this link.
