REDDING, Calif. — Debris removal from the Carr Fire is under way in Shasta County, but before the crews clear your land, there's some last-minute information you should know.
Janelle Galbraith Management Assistant to the City Manager, with the Redding city planner's office says once approved for debris removal, almost everything will be taken care of by crews.
In fact, the Debris Removal Right-of-Entry Permit Application for both Redding and unincorporated Shasta County allow you to describe other vehicles, boats, and trailers on the property that you want to be removed.
However, that only extends to the "ash foot print" on your property.
"That means there may be outside of the ash foot print that are not taken care of by Cal Recycle. But you can use the debris removal portion of your insurance, if necessary to remove those items and take care of those expenses and not have to worry about paying for them out of pocket," said Galbraith.
She says the most important thing is that you work with your insurance company to find the best solution to the additional debris.
Galbraith also said if you have a burned vehicle or boat you must notify and get a junk slip from the DMV.
If you need help with the process, she suggests visiting the Shastareddingrecovers.org website and contact United Policyholders.
If you still need to sign up for debris removal, you still have time. The last day to apply is September 30, 2018.
The Carr Fire debris removal center is located at 1300 Hilltop Drive, behind the Bank of America building.
