Take Extra Care with Hazardous Waste

Hazardous waste should always be separated from non-hazardous materials. Types of hazardous waste includes:

  • Cleaning products such as bleach, ammonia, and polishes

  • Pesticides and repellants

  • Automotive fluids

  • Paints, varnishes, and solvents

  • Batteries, fluorescent lightbulbs, and items containing mercury

Get Local Permits Before You Rebuild; Repair Safer & Stronger

BATON ROUGE, La. – If you have property affected by the recent severe storms and flooding in Louisiana, you’re encouraged to get the necessary permits before starting new construction or repairs.

“The first step for any property owners in Louisiana who have damage to their homes or businesses should be to check with your local building official,” said Federal Coordinating Officer Gerard M. Stolar. “That official can work with you or your contractor to ensure any permits are properly filed and necessary inspections are carried out.”
