An online dashboard is available to track the cleanup of household hazardous waste from properties burned by the Woolsey Fire.
Los Angeles County firefighting crews are coordinating with the state Department of Toxic Substances Control and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to manage door-to-door assessment, removal, transport and disposal of hazardous waste.
Ground crews update the information daily at www.lacounty.gov/lacountyrecovers.
To date, roughly 20 percent of 1,186 affected properties have been cleared and posted with a yellow placard. The number of properties is lower than the number of structures damaged or destroyed because some properties have multiple structures.
The work doesn’t require property owner consent and owners can’t opt of the assessment and removal. But teams may need help from property owners to unlock gates for inspections and removals.
Property owners with questions can check the online site or call the Los Angeles County Fire Department at (323) 890-4000 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays.
