Sept. 20, 2021

Fire officials have canceled fire safety burn bans on outdoor burning in unincorporated Skagit and Whatcom counties.

However, please use discretion – smoke from burning wet yard waste can cause localized air pollution issues and pose risks for neighbors who are exposed. It also puts an added burden on first responders.

Composting, chipping, and other options are available. Check the Northwest Clean Air Agency website; scroll to “Alternatives to Burning.”
