Outdoor burning not allowed

The Spokesman-Review
 

The Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency is reminding residents that outdoor burning of residential yard debris is no longer allowed.

The “8-Day Spring Burn” program ended in 2009 as part of the agency’s efforts to reduce air pollution. This year, the agency will enforce outdoor burning restrictions by responding to reports of illegal burning. To report illegal burns, call (509) 477-4727 or visit www.spokanecleanair.com.

To help alleviate the need to burn, free composting training will be offered from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 10 by the Spokane County Master Composters at Fire Station 49, located at Highway 395 near Monroe Road.

At the event, the Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency will accept natural vegetation from residents.
