Debris and Ash Removal

The magnitude of the 2020 wildfires has greatly impacted Napa County. State and Federal agencies have been called in to provide additional resources for responding to the Hennessey Fire. As  Napa County moves into the recovery phase from the 2020 Wildfires, the safe and appropriate removal of household hazardous waste (HHW) and debris and ash is a County priority. The improper handling and disposal of hazardous material may impact you, the environment, and the general public health.

Note to Residential Property Owners Impacted by the Glass Fire:

As Napa County moves into the recovery phase from the Glass Fire, the safe and appropriate removal of debris and ash is a County priority. We understand the desire to begin clean-up and move into the rebuilding phase. However, improper handling and disposal of hazardous material may impact you and the general public health.

The 2020 Glass Fire has greatly impacted Napa County. Hundreds of structures have burned creating a large scale and complex debris management challenge that must consider Federal, state and local regulations. Napa County is working with the California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) on facilitating the request for debris clean-up and removal support for residential properties. As Napa County receives more information from CalOES, we will share it immediately with those directly impacted by the fires. For your safety, please do not begin debris removal on residential properties, we appreciate your patience.
