What is a Government-Sponsored Debris Removal Program?

In some instances, the State or Federal governments may conduct a Phase 2 Debris Removal Program. The government will contract with debris haulers to remove the structural debris from your parcel, and conduct asbestos and soil tests to ensure any residual toxins from the burn are removed. In exchange for the government performing this service, property owners are asked to sign a “Right of Entry” form in which they agree that any insurance proceeds in a property owner’s homeowners insurance policy designated for debris removal will be turned over to the government. Property owners are not required to pay any additional money to the government other than designated debris proceeds in their policies.
