Yes. If your insurance policy specifies a specified amount for debris removal, you may use your insurance proceeds to remove fire-related debris that was ineligible under the Consolidated Debris Removal Program.

If your homeowner's insurance policy does not have a separate, debris-specific clause and instead includes the cost of debris removal in the total coverage, you may use these proceeds to pay for the removal of fire-related debris that is ineligible for removal under the program.

In either scenario, the property owner will be required to substantiate all expenditures. We recommend that you contact your insurance provider to confirm that the debris removal line item will cover your specific situation. In addition, please ensure that any receipts for post-debris removal cleanup conducted by the homeowner are saved.

The County will only collect the remaining insurance proceeds, if any, after you have removed ineligible fire-related debris.
