Alternatives to Burning

"Improving Air Quality in our Community"


Smoke from open fires can become a problem for those with health issues and it can also be a nuisance to the surrounding neighborhood. Open burning also leads to an increase in greenhouse gas emissions into the environment.  There are however several environmentally friendly ways to dispose of your yard waste rather than burning the materials.

They include the “Three C’s”:

  • Chipping
  • Composting
  • Commercial disposal              

The Westshore Chamber of Commerce and the Better Business Bureau  maintain a list of local businesses that can be contacted to assist you with any of these alternatives solutions to burning.
