We understand! We know you’re anxious to get started with clean-up and recovery efforts. We are expecting more detailed information about the federal debris management program soon, but in the meantime please make sure you are aware of and following the guidance we posted yesterday. Most importantly, we want to make sure everyone is aware that any private property owner choosing to conduct site clean-up work of any structural or ash-related debris (this does not include sifting through material for personal belongings) on their own would be ineligible for the debris removal program, and is responsible for following state and local permitting requirements, which will include closeout inspections and utility requirements. This includes a deconstruction or demolition permit from your local building department.
People seeking assistance with sifting through ash/debris in search of personal belongings should contact the trained volunteers at Crisis Cleanup by visiting CrisisCleanup.org or by calling 720-206-0627.
Thank you for your patience as we work to get you more information.
