CITIZENS CAN IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE IN OUR CITY BY OBSERVING THE FOLLOWING CODES:

  1. Do not litter or place signs on public rights of way such as neutral grounds or utility posts or boxes.
  2. Properly contain solid waste for collection and remove carts from the public rights of way once emptied.
  3. Call 311 to schedule pick-up of bulky waste, such as furniture, bundled carpet or more than 6 bundles of tree branches (both, cut 4-foot or less), and up to 4 tires. Businesses are not eligible for bulky waste collection. (Section 138)
  4. Arrange for the private disposal of debris related to construction, renovations or the clearing of property. (Section 138)
  5. Ensure that all permanent dumpsters are screened from public view.
  6. Cut grass and remove litter, grass cuttings, and leaves from properties, extending 1.5 feet from the curb. Grass should not be allowed to grow above 18 inches in height.
  7. Do not sweep, blow, or pour items into storm drains. Water from storm drains flows into Lake Pontchartrain.
  8. Do not keep more than 20 tires on a property and do not transport more than 20 tires, unless specifically permitted by the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality.
  9. If hauling garbage, trash or other loose items in vehicles, securely cover the contents.
