The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) continues to make steady progress on the Consolidated Debris Removal Program in Northern California following the October 2017 wildfires. 

This weekend, the City of Santa Rosa and County of Sonoma, in coordination with state and federal partners, will hold three resource fairs focused on debris removal.

Residents whose properties were destroyed by the wildfires have the ability to access the government-operated Fire Debris Removal Program to ensure their property is left free of hazardous waste and debris; the deadline to apply for the program is November 13, 2017.

Sonoma County residents whose properties were destroyed by the wildfires have the ability to access the government operated Sonoma County Consolidated Debris Fire Removal Program to ensure that their property is left free of hazardous waste and debris.  Residential property owners must submit a Right of Entry (ROE) form by close of business on November 13, 2017, in order to participate in the Program.  

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is working with local, state and federal partners on the response to the Northern California fires. EPA is leading the survey, collection and disposal of household hazardous waste (HHW) in Sonoma and Napa counties. This work will allow other state and federal agencies to remove ash and other non-hazardous debris and the rebuilding process to begin.
