LANE COUNTY, Ore. -- Residents who lost their homes to the Holiday Farm Fire have one important step ahead of them before they can rebuild -- clearing hazards from their property.

Lane County is offering free hazardous waste cleanup services to those who would like to opt in. Insurance may be billed, officials said.

Before services can be provided, property owners must sign an access agreement, a Right to Entry form, by Oct. 16. This will allow crews to clean up any hazardous waste at the site.

Commercial and industrial properties are included in hazardous waste and debris removal efforts.

Officials said this is the first step of the cleanup process. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will assess and remove waste from burned properties and the work will be funded by FEMA and the State of Oregon.

The second step involves the removal of ash, debris and burned-out structures. State, county, and federal partners are working to develop options for this work. It is not yet known if this service will be available at no cost.

The hazardous waste removal is expected to begin between Oct. 20 and 22 and be complete by Dec. 31.
