Debris removal after a fire is complicated where hazardous substances may be present. Insurance may not defray the full cost, as debris removal coverage is often sub-limited. The State of Oregon DEQ and FEMA have teamed up to provide removal of some hazardous waste at no cost to property owners. However, owners have only until October 16 to fill out an access agreement (the “Right of Entry” Form), to participate in the process. For more information on what is available in your county, and to fill out the Right of Entry form, please visit: https://wildfire.oregon.gov/cleanup.
