Air District Announcements for May 2015

The Air District requires that only clean dry vegetation be burned.  Burning non-vegetation; wet vegetation; burning in a burn barrel; and, burning on a no burn day are violations of Air District rules.  Burning by commercial businesses requires a burn permit from the Air District. 
If smoke from your fire is creating a nuisance to your neighbor, you are required to put the fire out. 

Call  209-533-5598 for burn day information.

You must possess a valid burn permit from Cal Fire or your local fire agency.  Burn hours are restricted to evening hours of 7 p.m. to 8 a.m.  It is your responsibility to follow the requirements of your burn permit including night time burn hours; being in attendance at all times; having 10 feet of clearance; and, limiting your pile size to no more than 4 feet in diameter.  

The Air District encourages recycling or composting of your vegetation.  If you must burn, please burn safely.

2014/15 Green Waste Voucher Recipients have until June 30, 2015 to redeem their vouchers through Cal Sierra Green Waste facility or the Plainview Slash Site.
