Oak Fire Debris Removal Community Meetings

MARIPOSA–Mariposa County Residents who have been impacted by the Oak Fire and lost their homes will have the opportunity to learn about the next steps to recovery. 127 homes were destroyed in the Oak Fire during July and August, earlier this year. The fire is now 98% contained.

Mariposa County has partnered with the State to provide debris removal at NO COST to landowners. This is a two-part process with Phase 1 being the removal of Household Hazardous Waste and Phase 2 being the removal of other debris.

Debris removal after the wildfire is an important step to help property owners recover. State agencies, local government, and property owners work together to complete a two-phase removal process, the Consolidated Debris Removal Program.

Debris Removal Phase 1

Any property with damage will be automatically enrolled in Phase 1. If you have a locked gate on your property or have questions, please call 209-966-2220.


Debris Removal Phase 2

Properties with damaged structures 120 square feet or larger are eligible for Phase 2. This process does require opting in before debris removal. Individuals can choose their own path with this but will not be eligible for the free program.
Please remember that the Mariposa County Landfill cannot take fire debris.
