Deadline for private fire debris cleanup



The County of Sonoma and City of Santa Rosa have set April 9 as the deadline for completion of private fire debris cleanup.

The deadline requires that properties be cleared of ash and debris by April 9 and pertains to all residential property owners in Sonoma County who had homes destroyed by the October 2017 wildfires and opted out of the government-sponsored debris removal program. Commercial properties are also subject to the April 9 deadline.

Property owners who opted out will receive a letter from the County or City explaining the deadline and why the timely removal of hazardous debris at all burn sites is essential.

“It is critical that the debris be safely and promptly removed to protect property owners, neighborhoods, and our watersheds,” said Sonoma County Director of Environmental Health Christine Sosko. “All properties, including commercial properties, are required to promptly remove the hazardous debris from their properties to ensure protection of public health.”

If properties fail to meet the deadline, the County of Sonoma and City of Santa Rosa may assess penalties and/or take abatement actions.
