New Tajiguas Landfill Rate Approved for Cost Effective Disposal of 1/9 Debris Material by Haulers to Facilitate Private Property Debris Removal

Key Challenge in Montecito is Cost Effective Removal of Debris from Private Property

Finding areas to transfer the hundreds of tons of boulders, dirt, mud and debris that rushed down the mountain above Montecito on Jan. 9 has become one of the most challenging aspects of the massive recovery effort which began shortly after the initial emergency response.

Due to the threat of future storms and to support critical response activities, in the intital days and weeks of the reponse, the County focused on critical public health and saftety needs of the community by removing materials from the public areas including creeks, debris basins and roadways.

A short-term solution to address removal of debris on private property was approved by the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors at today’s (March 20) meeting. This allows private debris to be taken to the Tajiguas Landfill and stockpiled and sorted.
