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.
