This document is an update of Planning for Disaster Debris published by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 1995 (document EPA530-K-95-010). This document is designed for local communities (including cities, counties, tribes, etc.) who are encouraged to create disaster debris management plans. Information is included on: (1) Recommended components of a disaster debris management plan. (2) Management options for various debris streams that might be found after a natural disaster. (3) A collection of case studies that highlights how several communities prepared for and managed debris generated by recent natural disasters. (4) Federal, state, and local resources to consult in planning for natural disasters. This document discusses the management of debris from natural disasters, such as hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, volcanoes, floods, wildfires, and winter storms. It does not discuss the management of debris from deliberate or planned incidents of national significance.
