The steps of property cleanup



As we approach the two-month mark, progress continues to move forward early in the overall 18-month cleanup process. This graphic gives an overview of the different steps involved in site cleanup, from when we receive permission to enter private properties to begin the cleanup process through sign off that a property is ready to rebuild.


Remember, there’s no up-front cost for most property owners who opt in to our debris removal program. To register, visit wildfire.oregon.gov/cleanup or call the wildfire hotline at 503.934.1700.

Wildfire waste and debris removal

The State of Oregon is working with federal, state and local partners to remove hazardous waste, and ash and debris from the 2020 Oregon wildfires safely, efficiently, and as quickly as possible. The Oregon Departments of Transportation, Environmental Quality and Emergency Management are leading the effort, with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency assistance.
