Outdoor burning ends

Last day for spring outdoor burning on Friday, June 14th until October
Friday, June 14th, 2019 marks the last day for outdoor burning for most Lane County residents until October. The season closes one day early this year due to elevated fire danger and will re-open October 1st pending the end of wildfire season.
The Lane Fire Defense Board announced the end of the spring outdoor burning one day before the usual closing date due to elevated fire danger.
During the closed season, yard debris may be disposed of at one of several local debris collection or recycling centers such as, Lane Forest Products, Rexius, or Lane County’s transfer stations and dump sites. Composting and chipping are always encouraged.
Residents who burn during the closed season are subject to violations ranging from $50 to $2,500 or more.
The Lane County Fire Defense Board will decide if the season will open on time on the first of October or delay opening due to high fire risks.
People can check on the season’s status by going online at www.lrapa.org or calling the LRAPA daily open burning advisory line, (541) 726-3976. Coastal residents may call (541) 997-1757.
