Carbon Canyon Resident Brush Drop Off Day This Saturday

Though grant funding recently expired for a long-term project concerning a fuel reduction program, which allowed the Carbon Canyon Fire Safe Council to arrange for brush pick-ups for residents on the Chino Hills side of the Canyon, a new arrangement has been made by the Council with the City of Chino Hills.

This Saturday, the 24th, from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., Canyon residents will be able to bring cut brush to a drop-off location at Western Hills Park on Canon Lane, across from Fire Station 64, just north of Carbon Canyon Road.  There, a green waste dumpster provided by Chino Hills Disposal and paid for by the city will be available for off-loading the material.

It is important to note that all contents MUST BE BUNDLED and that those dropping off brush are to be prepared to do their own unloading.  For persons with special needs, there will be Fire Safe Council volunteers to assist.

Because this is a free service offered to Canyon residents, it is also essential that those taking part provde residency by bringing their driver's license, utility bill or Canyon emergency access pass.

With the fall coming and Santa Ana winds fueling the potential for dangerous fires within the Canyon and in adjacent areas, keeping up on the removal of brush assists greatly in mitigating some of the risk.

For those who cannot get their brush to the collection date this weekend, there'll be another time to do so next month, specifically Saturday, 22 October.

More information can be obtained by calling (909) 902-5280, extension 409.
