 DERIDDER — The City of DeRidder has selected its contracted debris removal company and monitoring company, Graham County Land Company and True North Emergency Management, respectively.

 The contract is pending approval by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The timeline for pickup is yet to be determined. After final approval, the timeline will be published.

 Homeowners should do the following:

 — Move debris out of the street and safely onto the right-of-way.

— Separate vegetation from demolition and construction debris.

— Place white goods separately and safely onto the right-of-way.

 The city’s debris contractor will only pick up what is on the right-of-way. Workers will not go into your yard.

 The contractor will make a minimum of three passes over the city. The city will advertise the final pass.

 Private contractors will need to haul directly to the city’s debris site. The site, at 1201 East 1st Street near Beauregard Cemetery, is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. six days a week, and is closed Sunday. Signs are posted.

 Bagged leaves will also be picked up. Place the bags onto the right-of-way.
