Share Article

According to recent reports, those in Gulf Coast communities are striving to put communities back together after the damage caused by Hurricane Isaac. In response, Kaufman Trailers highlights the role dump trailers play in natural disaster recovery.

Although Hurricane Isaac hit American communities over a month ago, local areas are still working to cleanup a variety of debris, from livestock to vegetation. A recent article from The Times-Picayune explains that community members, as well as government and disaster relief agencies, are putting forth effort to cleanup leftover debris as efficiently as possible. While the article states that many parishes in Louisiana are nearing the end of cleanup efforts, the Department of Transportation and Development states that “20 tombs, 13 boats, 18 vehicles and six houses are in the process of being removed from state roadways or right-of-ways.” Kaufman Trailers—a leading trailer manufacturer, retailer and distributor—commends the collective effort set forth by these communities, and highlights the extensive use of dump trailers to resourcefully remove debris.

Kaufman Trailers explains that although the public often associates trailer use with recreation, manufacturing and construction, these tools are also essential to helping communities recover from extensive damage, such as that caused by Hurricane Isaac. The article states, “DOTD states that either state crews or contractors have removed more than 265,000 cubic yards of debris from the 8,650 miles of roadway in the affected area. That's about 17,500 cubic yards a day.” The use of reliable trailers has proven an effective way of removing heavy matter, such as dead cattle. The article notes, “Hurricane Isaac debris cleanup moved along earlier this month, as Plaquemines Parish contractors piled lifeless cows onto dump trailers and brought them to incinerators.”

Kaufman Trailers adds that the use of trailers does require caution on behalf of those operating them and urges all cleanup crews to follow safety regulations. In addition, the article urges communities to separate debris into specific categories for more efficient hauling. Kaufman Trailers notes that this step is also essential, as keeping similar items together—such as construction materials, vegetation and hazardous substances—helps cleanup crews better balance and organize the loads they carry on trailers.

Kaufman Trailers explains that while the removal of debris is an act that can stir up many emotions, it is important for communities to return as they were before as soon as possible. In a recent press statement, Kaufman Trailers concludes, “It is great to see communities and officials working together to put their parishes back together. It is a sign of strength and resourcefulness. Although damage is never a good thing, it is inspiring that Hurricane Isaac cleanup is moving at a swift rate as opposed to the ongoing cleanup efforts caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.”
