Got leaves? How about pine needles? Pine cones? Yeup… me too. If you have more than you can possibly stuff into your yard debris roll cart… then you’ll be happy to hear that you can recycle your fall clean-up debris for half-price during the coming weeks.
From October 28th through November 9th (closed Sunday November 3rd) residents are encouraged to define their defensible space by taking advantage of the half-price yard debris days. You can recycle yard debris at Knott Landfill Recycling & Transfer Facility (Deschutes Recycling) for half-price – only $2 per cubic yard.
FireFree encourages residents to complete their fall clean up and maintenance of defensible space by bringing branches, leaves, shrubs and pine needles to Deschutes Recycling during this event. FireFree is a year-round effort to educate and increase resident participation in preparing for wildfires.
Please visit www.FireFree.org for more information about defensible space, reducing the structural vulnerability of homes and getting prepared for fire season. For more information about FireFree activities in your neighborhood, call your local fire department or Project Wildfire at (541) 382-7129.
