Trucks carry load after load of mudslide debris out of Montecito

Posted: Updated:

Truck after truck full of mud and debris from the mudslide that hit Montecito and buried Highway 101 are going in and out of a county dump site in Santa Barbara.

The trucks can carry 10-20 tons of debris at a time and make as many as seven trips a day. However, truck drivers say the volume of traffic going in and out of Montecito is slowing down the cleanup process.

The dump site is located near the County Jail off Calle Real.

Meanwhile, on the beaches in Montecito, the U.S. Coast Guard has been working to clean up the debris that was washed to the ocean.

Crews have reportedly found wrecked cars, propane tanks, gas cans, and other hazardous material containers, all which could contaminate the water.

The Coast Guard says it has removed several vehicles and a wide variety of hazardous materials.
