String of dozens of dump trucks, Neal Road Landfill, Butte County, California	<br />
Between 6 and 8 million tons of rubble, ash and soil needed to be removed before the Camp Fire area could be rebuilt. Three locations served as repositories for the debris: a landfill in Anderson, California, an hour north; a site near Beale Air Force Base in Yuba County, an hour south; and the Neal Road Landfill, right on the edge of Paradise.<br />
<br />
In the photo, the dark brown area on the right is the dumpsite for the Camp Fire debris. Neal Road is on the left. The Neal Road Landfill processed approximately 9,000 tons of Camp Fire debris a day—one 10-ton dump truck every 30-40 seconds.
