Yavapai County to Offer Free Slash Dropoff
Yavapai County is bringing back its annual free slash drop-off program at county transfer stations April 1st through June 1st.
County transfer stations are 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 program will assist residents in creating defensible space around their homes and other structures. Cutting away vegetation 5 to 30 feet from all structures and removing all debris and dead vegetation from roofs, decks, and the ground can reduce the potential of a wildfire spreading to your home.
Only the following items 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.
This program is for residential use only. Commercial loads will not be accepted.
