DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. – Douglas County residents affected by a wildfire can now seek free hazardous waste removal assistance.

The board of commissioners said residents who would like to receive help need to complete a right of entry form by Oct. 15. This form allows crews to access properties to clear them of hazards.

Officials said removing fire debris is a two step process. In the first step, properties are cleared of household hazardous waste to minimize exposure for the public. The second step involves removing ash and debris and burned-out structures.

The first step is set to begin and is being provided at no cost. More information on the second step will come soon, officials said.

To fill out the form, click here. Forms are also available at the Douglas County Public Works Department, room 304 at the courthouse in Roseburg. The office is open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. You can also pick up and drop off forms at the Glide Wildfire Donation Center at the Old Glide Middle School, 301 Glide Loop Road from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
