Carbon Canyon Brush Drop-off Day This Saturday!

The Carbon Canyon Fire Safe Council will be presenting its Spring brush drop off day this Saturday, 27 April from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. as part of its program for fuel reduction to mitigate fire hazards in the Canyon.  The location is next to Western Hills Park and Fire Station 64 on Canon Lane, just off Carbon Canyon Road, in Chino Hills.

With the support of the City of Chino Hills absorbing the cost of providing roll-off bins from Chino Hills Disposal, Fire Safe Council volunteers will be on hand to help those with special needs to offload brush and green waste from their vehicles into the bins, though others should be ready to unload their own brush.  In all cases, the waste has to be bundled to be accepted.

This service is provided free to residents only, who are asked to bring their identification, utility bill or canyon resident emergency access pass to prove Canyon residency.

With fire inspections by the Chino Valley Independent Fire District beginning on 15 May, it is to the advantage of Canyon residents to take the opportunity to clear brush on their properties and take it down to the site for free removal.  Those who don't have their lots clear by the inspections face the prospect of fines.

There will be a second drop off day in the late summer/early fall and residents can learn more by logging onto www.CarbonCanyonFSC.com or calling the fire district at (909) 902-5280, extension 409.
