Butte County: Right-of-Entry Center Opens Monday for Debris Removal Program


A Right-of-Entry (ROE) Center will open Monday, December 10, for property owners to hand in ROE forms and ask questions about the Debris Removal Program.
ROE Center Information:
Hours: 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday – Saturday
Property owners may also call the ROE Center directly at (530) 552-3155. For more information about the Debris Removal Program, read the full announcement or visit buttecountyrecovers.org/debrisremoval.
The Consolidated Debris Removal Program (Program) has two phases: removal of household hazardous waste and removal of other fire-related debris.

Phase I: Household Hazardous Waste Removal

In Phase I, local government, state and federal agencies have organized teams of experts from the California State Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) to inspect your property and remove any household hazardous waste that may pose a threat to human health, animals, and the environment such as batteries, herbicide, pesticide, propane tanks, asbestos siding, and paints. Phase I is automatic and includes both residential and commercial properties destroyed by the fire.

Phase I is underway. EPA and DTSC will only conduct household hazardous waste removal operations in areas where evacuation orders have been lifted. EPA is coordinating closely with the Paradise Police Department and the Butte County Sheriff’s Office to ensure EPA and DTSC crews are only in areas where residents have had the opportunity to return.
