Yard debris can be fuel for a wildfire. Clean it up and remove it to be Firewise! Living in Ashland, you have local options for removing green/yard debris from your property. Here are some options!
Recology Ashland Sanitary Service
Residential Green Debris Program is a great way to deal with green debris year round. Recology will provide 95-gallon green roll-carts that can be filled with lawn clippings, plant trimmings, leaves, and other plant materials (if it grows, it goes). There is no deposit required, and the bi-weekly Ashland/Talent pick-up cost $7.17 per month.
You can also haul your yard debris to the Valley View Transfer Station 7 days a week from 7:30 A.M. – 4 P.M. Drop off fee is $8.40 per cubic yard of green debris. The transfer station is located at 3000 N Valley View Road, Ashland, OR 97520
Bring your leaves to the Free Leaf Drop-Off at the Ashland Recycle Center on Water and Van Ness Streets between 9am - 4pm on Sunday November 21st through Sunday December 5th.
Pre-Paid Leaf Bag Program occurs in November and December each year. You can purchase leaf only bags at the Recology Ashland Sanitary Service office at 170 Oak St. in Ashland. Place leaf bags on the curb on trash pickup day during GREEN DEBRIS & RECYCLE week. Call Recology Ashland Sanitary Service at (541) 482-1471 for more information.

Do it yourself!
Rent your own brush chipper at a local rental store. Make sure the chipper can handle more than the diameter of the material you need to chip. Check the machine over (especially blades) and ask about any sharpening fees. Chips are OK in the landscape, but they should be at least 2-3 feet away from any structure (siding, decks, and wooden fences). As always, wear appropriate Personal Protective Equipment and read all safety instructions before operating heavy machinery.
