Larimer County received a grant from the Denver Foundation in the amount of $45,000 to place large roll off dumpsters in the High Park and Woodland Heights burn areas for structure debris removal. The grant came through the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado. Since the fire was contained, many volunteers have been assisting in structure debris removal. One such group, the Southern Baptist Connection Disaster Relief volunteers have played a large role in this process. A continuing issue has been getting the debris out of the burn area. This new grant will allow volunteers to move the debris directly from the site into containers to then be transported to the landfill. In addition, sites where debris has been contained, but not moved out, can now go into containers and be moved out.
