Free Yard Debris Pick Up During FireFree 2014
Awbrey Butte owners will be able to take advantage of free yard debris pick up in conjunction with FireFree
this year. Project Wildfire and Deschutes County have received grant funds to help reduce flammable fuel in high risk areas. Some of this money will be used to pay contractors to pick up and haul away yard debris within Awbrey Butte.
Owners will be able to place yard debris out for pick up from Friday April 25 until Thursday, May 1. Contractors will begin picking up the debris on Friday, May 2.
Pine needles and cones
Limbs (8" maximum diameter - 6' maximum length)
Weeds and leaves.
Items that are not acceptable:
Rocks and dirt
Materials should be staged in a pile on the edge of your lot, adjacent to the street or sidewalk, taking care not to block any sidewalks. The pile should be in an easily accessible location, clear of any trees or boulders.
If it is not feasible to stage the material on your lot, you may place it in the parking lane on the street. Please wait until as close to May 1st as possible, if you have to place the material on the street.
If you only have a very small amount of yard debris, you can place it in a plastic, or metal, container. The container must be of a size that can be lifted by one person.
This is a great opportunity to reduce our risk of a wildland fire and we encourage everyone to participate. It will look messy for a few days but the results will be worth it! Please tell your neighbors about it, in case they haven't opted in to receive these notices.
