For over a decade, CalRecycle has supported communities impacted by wildfires and other disasters by safely disposing of debris and ensuring properties are safe for survivors to rebuild.

At the direction of the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES), CalRecycle collaborates with local, state, and federal partners in recovery efforts.

Debris removal operations recycle, reuse, and divert debris to the greatest extent possible.
