All Property Owners with Structures Burned by the Camp Fire Reminded to Register for Debris Removal Program

Posted on January 9, 2019

Property Owners whose homes, businesses, or other structures burned in the Camp Fire must sign up for Phase II debris removal. Property owners can sign up for the Government Program by submitting a Right-of-Entry form by January 31, 2019. Property owners who choose to hire a private contractor and consultants(s) must sign up for the Alternative Fire Debris Removal Program by completing an application and submitting a Work Plan to Butte County Environmental Health. The Deadline to register for the Alternative Program is February 28, 2019.

Phase I, removal of hazardous waste, is automatic and mandatory for all property owners and must be complete before removing remaining fire debris in Phase II. The U.S. EPA and California Department of Toxic Substances Control are conducting Phase I, which is 54% complete with over 7,005 parcels marked complete.

Residents are encouraged to learn more about Phase II debris removal by attending a community meeting or by visiting ButteCountyRecovers.org/debrisremoval to watch previously recorded meetings and review frequently asked questions about the Government Program and the Alternative Program.
