Popp’s Ferry debris site to close Sunday at sunset

The storm-surge debris site near the Popp’s Ferry Road soccer complex will close Sunday at sunset.

The FEMA-funded site had accepted debris from those areas inundated by the Hurricane Katrina storm surge. No-dumping signs and a fence will be erected at the site Monday morning.

Residents whose property was inundated by the storm surge should place any remaining storm debris on the right-of-way in front of their property. Those residents outside the surge areas must haul any storm debris to a local landfill.
