FireFree encourages residents to get prepared for the upcoming wildfire season by cleaning up their yards and creating defensible space around their homes. 

In addition to cleaning up yard waste that has accumulated over the past year and removing flammable vegetation, residents are encouraged to prune trees that present a hazard and clear any flammable vegetation that encroaches on the minimum 30-foot buffer zone, “the FireFree Zone”, around homes and other structures.    

FireFree allows residents of Central Oregon the opportunity to recycle yard waste and debris at no charge at area landfills and transfer stations in Deschutes and Jefferson Counties.
