Carbon Canyon Brush Drop Off This Saturday

The Carbon Canyon Fire Safe Council will be holding its biannual brush clearance drop off day this Saturday, the 28th from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Canon Lane, just north of Fire Station 64.

Representatives of the Council will be assisting residents of the Chino Hills portion of Carbon Canyon in offloading brush from their vehicles into a roll-off bin provided by Chino Hills Disposal by arrangement with the City of Chino Hills, which is covering the costs of the program.

Chino Hills residents of the canyon can bring down their cut brush at any time between the hours listed and multiple drop-offs are welcome.

With another subpar winter rainy season in 2012-13 and upcoming fall Santa Ana winds and dry conditions, as well as the reality that fire season is now year-round, it is important for property owners to make comprehensive brush clearance a priority to reduce fire risk.

The brush drop-off program is another important project of the Carbon Canyon Fire Safe Council and its partners in Chino Hills Disposal and the City of Chino Hills.  For any questions about the program, please call the Chino Valley Fire District at (909) 902-5280, extension 409 or e-mail jpowderly@chofire.org.
