To reduce wildfire hazard in our communities, the US Forest Service, San Carlos Ranger District and ARWC will host wildfire mitigation slash collection sites for residents living adjacent to, or in communities adjacent to, National Forest in the San Isabel and Beulah areas. Residents are invited to bring slash and natural woody material from wildfire mitigation efforts to the staffed collection site during this one-day event.
Only slash and natural woody material from wildfire mitigation efforts is accepted. Absolutely no trash. Each load will be evaluated before unloading.
Please help us continue this service to the community by honoring these rules:
Bring only natural woody debris from wildfire mitigation from only your property adjacent to, or in communities adjacent to, National Forest in the San Isabel-Beulah areas.
Limbs and branches from firs, pines, oak and brush will be accepted.
NO lumber, weeds, grass, sawdust, stumps, wood chips or trash of any kind will be allowed.
NO ground litter such as mulch or pine needles will be allowed.
NO commercial operators at this event. Contractors working for participating landowners are welcome.
USFS will collect the slash piles for burning next winter. Additional collection dates will be offered throughout the year. We will post that information here. For more information, please contact Allyson Pokrzywinski @ firstname.lastname@example.org or 719 221 5215.
