Cleanup Assistance for Residents

If your property experienced damage and you need cleanup assistance, contact Crisis Cleanup at 504-350-0788. Services will be provided by community organizations and volunteers. Service is by availability only and is not guaranteed.

Debris Removal

St. Bernard Parish Government has opened two temporary transfer (dump) sites – one on the north side of Judge Perez Dr. at Mehle and Mustang Dr. (Old Arabi Park Middle School) and the other is located on the southside of Judge Perez Dr at 6801 Bienvenue St.  Both of these temporary locations are available to St. Bernard Parish homeowners that were directly affected by the tornado.  We are asking residents and/or volunteers who are assisting with cleanup to bring their debris to these two locations.  These temporary sites are used to speed up cleanup and recovery of the affected areas.  Debris will only be at these two sites for a short time and then will be moved to a landfill location.  We apologize for any inconvenience as we work to quickly assist our Arabi residents in their recovery.

The current priorities in tornado response include supplies and cleanup assistance. If you are an organization that can assist with these resources, please submit your information via this form. We ask that you do not deploy resources without coordinating with the Parish first.

We have had an amazing outpouring of support for meals for affected residents and first responders. At this time, there is NOT an additional need for food or meals.
