Friday & Saturday, November 9th and 10th are the last two days that residents can recycle their yard debris at Deschutes Recycling for HALF PRICE – only $2.00 per cubic yard.  The yard debris will be recycled into compost and clean energy fuel. 

FireFree encourages residents to complete their fall clean up and maintenance of defensible space by bringing branches, leaves, shrubs and pine needles to Deschutes Recycling during this event.

Residents can take advantage of this event as an alternative to fall burning and recycle the combustible vegetation inside the 30-100 feet of defensible space around their homes.

 “Burning yard debris is no longer allowed inside the city limits of Bend so FireFree provides this opportunity for Bend residents to recycle their debris inexpensively and legally,” says Katie Lighthall, FireFree Coordinator.

“This is a great opportunity to partner with FireFree in offering a 50% discount off yard debris recycling.  We hope residents will be able to clean up their fall leaves and pine needles and help provide a safe FireFree space around their homes,” says Brad Bailey, President of Deschutes Recycling.

 

Deschutes Recycling is located at Knott Landfill and open Monday – Saturday

7:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

61050 SE 27th Street, Bend

 

Remember, Deschutes Recycling and Knott Landfill are closed on Sundays and Veteran’s Day
