BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - California lawmakers are now calling Camp Fire debris cleanup the largest in the State's history.
The cost is expected to reach $1.7 million.
The deadline to fill out your right-of-entry form for state-sponsored clean-up is Jan. 31.
There is no cost for those without homeowners insurance. For those who do, federal agencies will deduct the damage.
Private contractors say that they could perform the clean-up faster, and are not sure why it's taking so long to get their clean-up permits approved.
"The government needs to be here to help us clean it up," said George A. Santos, president of Santos Excavating Inc. "There's no way I can do it all. There's no way the community can do it all. It's needed. They also need to let us go to work."
Assemblyman James Gallagher said that a large effort will be made to get the debris removal process underway.
"There will be a very large effort coming in and doing the debris removal in a very efficient and consistent way," Gallagher said.
Local contractors say Camp Fire survivors have options that could save some cash.
