Prescott AZ (March 11, 2014) – The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors has announced the continuation of the annual free slash drop-off program at county transfer stations for two months beginning April 1, and continuing until June 1, 2014. County transfer stations are located in Black Canyon City, Camp Verde, Congress, Mayer, Paulden, Seligman, and Skull Valley. Free slash drop off will be held during normal operating hours.
This free slash drop-off program will assist residents in developing necessary defensible space around their homes and other structures that could fuel fires. Keeping fuels managed is absolutely necessary to help avoid uncontrolled fires that can become extremely damaging.
The following items only will be accepted: brush, branches, grass, leaves and yard trimmings. Items not accepted are: lumber, stumps, roots, cactus, metal and garbage. All slash must be removed from plastic bags.
Please take advantage of the free slash drop-off program and clean up around your properties.
For additional information, please contact the Yavapai County Public Works Department at (928) 771-3183.
