Lincoln County Property Owners: Deadline to submit your Right of Entry is April 15!

Press release issued by the Oregon Debris Management Task Force on April 1, 2021 (Link)


Attention Lincoln County property owners: As debris removal work begins to wrap up in the Echo Mountain fire area and crews mobilize elsewhere in the state later this month, we want to ensure that property owners who haven’t opted in yet still have the chance to do so. To help with this, the deadline to submit a Right of Entry (ROE) agreement is April 15, 2021.

For all other counties: If you haven’t signed up for cleanup with us yet, the deadline to submit an ROE is fast approaching. As your first step, property owners must sign and submit an ROE, which is an access agreement that allows Step 2 cleanup crews onto their property.



Why opt in to the state debris cleanup program?


We help property owners remove wildfire debris from their properties so that it’s safe and ready to rebuild. We want to ensure that everyone with fire-damaged property has the opportunity to participate in our cleanup program. Participating in Step 2 cleanup is voluntary, but we highly recommend it. Performing cleanup work on your own can be dangerous, time consuming and expensive. It may reduce the amount of insurance money you have available to rebuild your home.


We need your help in allowing our crews to mobilize to future sites as quickly and efficiently as possible. When you sign up before or as work starts in your area, it allows our crews to plan ahead and work as efficiently as possible. Your cooperation in this process is valuable and appreciated.
