ECC was originally the winner of the U.S. Army Corps contract to do ALL cleanup. That contract expired and now AshBrit is the contractor handling cleanup. ECC still has an obligation to finish a certain amount of homes so they may still be in some neighborhoods finishing.
CalOES understands these processes can be frustrating and asked for us all to be patient. To put things in perspective, this is the “LARGEST DEBRIS CLEANUP in US HISTORY”. They do have a system for prioritizing neighborhoods based on water shed, schools impacted and on down the list.
If you have experienced issues with receiving a phone call in regards to debris removal and then no one has showed up, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the issue, your address etc and we can pass this along direct to our contact. They need to know about any issues we are experiencing. Please continue to call the hotline if need be. 877-875-7681
They also understand we feel a bit left behind in the progress. They expressed we should start to see more happening in the weeks to come.

A target date of February 15th has been given for the total debris clean-up to conclude in our neighborhood. As of December 5, 861 lots throughout the county have been cleared, and 64 had been cleared and returned to the property owner. Once a lot is cleared, soil testing is conducted to ensure toxins are removed. The soil testing takes time, once the test comes back clean, the lot is returned to the property owner. If you have questions regarding debris clean-up, please call the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at 877-875-7681.
The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers is switching debris clean-up contractors to AshBritt. They will be ramping up this week and next, according to Supervisor James Gore. When asked why, it was to due with government contracting and ECC’s contract (the former debris clean-up contractor) timed out and AshBritt won the contract. Some reasons why no phone calls have been made and very few crews have been in and around our neighborhood.
Debris clean-up has been completed at the following addresses:
- 35 Brighton Court
- 16 Oxford Court
- 17 Oxford Court
