Grass Valley burn barrel ban goes into effect March 27

At midnight March 27, burning household garbage or trash in burn barrels (incinerators) will be prohibited in the city of Grass Valley.

Natural vegetation grown on the premises may still be burned in small piles, not to exceed four feet, with a permit. The new burn hours in Grass Valley will be from 8 a.m. to noon and only on approved burn days. Also a new burn number has been put into operation. The number is 272-2465 and pertains only to areas within city limits.

In an effort to further reduce smoke emissions, the city has scheduled six drop-off days for vegetative material. The drop point will be at the Condon Park gate at Butler and Packard streets on May 3-4, May 24-25 and June 14-15. Additional days will be scheduled if needed.
