- Ventura County, CA
- Description of Project:
At the beginning of 2018, Sukut was contracted by CalRecycle to perform the emergency cleanup of over 600 burned residential lots following the Thomas Fire, the biggest fire in the history of California. Sukut deployed 40 crews that occupied 140 trucks to work daily in different regions of the Ventura County. Through a process of sorting the debris types on site (ash, metal, concrete, soil), the material was then wrapped in trucks and hauled to a safe disposal site at the local Toland Landfill, eliminating exposure of the community to hazardous materials. At a peak pace of 80 completed homes per work week, Ventura County was able to move forward and rebuild in a safe, timely manner.
