The latest data the City of Malibu had available the morning of Thursday, Jan. 31, indicated that roughly 200 residents of Malibu had not yet taken action in regard to the fire debris removal program.

The data, from Monday, Jan. 28, indicated that 237 residents had submitted right of entry forms to participate in the program offered by Los Angeles County and the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery, according to Craig George, environmental sustainability director for the City of Malibu. Another 46 residents had opted out as of Jan. 28, George said.

The deadline to submit a form was to be Thursday, Jan. 31, at close of business, but the County of Los Angeles announced an extension to Feb. 15 just after 4:30 p.m. on Jan. 31. 

Forms can be submitted at Malibu City Hall (23825 Stuart Ranch Road) or at the Debris Removal Operations Center in Calabasas (26610 Agoura Road).

George said the City of Malibu did “every possible thing we could think of” to try to reach those who had not yet applied, including reverse 9-1-1 calls, sending notices to people, social media blasts, website posts and advertisements in the papers.
