Carbon Canyon Brush Clearance Drop-Off This Saturday

From 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Saturday, 12 May, the Carbon Canyon Fire Safe Council will be offering the first of two brush clearance drop-off programs. 

Held next to Western Hills Park, across from the Chino Valley Fire District station, on the corner of Carbon Canyon Road and Canon Lane, the program allows residents of the Chino Hills side of Carbon Canyon to drop off cleared brush from their property. 

Thanks to the City of Chino Hills, two large roll-off dumpsters provided by Chino Hills Disposal will be on-hand for the collection of this material.  All residents need to do is bring their cleared brush and Fire Safe Council members will assist in placing the material into the dumpsters.

This event is timed to assist people in meeting the 15 May deadline, imposed by the fire district, for the clearance of brush in order to minimize potential fire risks as hotter weather comes and drier, combustible plant material accumulates.

There will be another drop-off date in the Fall before the Santa Ana wind season kicks up and brings further fire risk.
