Phase I of the cleanup of properties impacted by the Camp Fire is close to being complete. The Butte County Recovers website is saying that state and federal agencies have completed 72 percent of the clean up of affected properties in Paradise and other areas of Butte County. The agencies continue to lead the survey, collection, and disposal of household hazardous waste.
Officials anticipate Phase I to be complete at the end of February.
Meanwhile, officials say Phase II debris removal applies to property owners who have debris from burned structures 120 square feet or larger on their property.
Property owners can sign up for the Government Program for debris removal by submitting a Right-of-Entry Form by January 31st.
Officials say that the Right-of-Entry forms need to be turned in to the ROE Center at 202 Mira Loma Drive in Oroville which is open 8 to 5 Monday through Saturday.
Property owners who choose to hire a private contractor and consultants 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 that program is February 28th.
