LANE COUNTY — The opening of the fall outdoor burning season has been delayed until November 1, 2022. The season, originally set to start Oct. 1, has been delayed by the Lane County Fire Defense Board and the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) due to a dry and warmer than average weather outlook.

“Lane County remains dry, and the current forecast does not call for any rain,” said Lane Regional Air Protection Agency (LRAPA) spokesperson, Travis Knudsen. Yard debris may not be burned while the season remains closed. Lane Forest Products, Rexius,
or Lane County’s transfer stations and dumpsites are resources available to those who wish to dispose of woody yard material ahead of the burn season on Nov 1. Residents who burn during the closed season are subject to violations ranging from $50 to $2,500 or more.

LRAPA has published a factsheet providing information on non-burning disposal alternatives for natural vegetation in Lane County.

The Lane County Fire Defense Board and ODF will decide to open the fall burning season or delay it further closer to Oct. 15. People can check on the season’s status by visiting LRAPA’s website, or calling the LRAPA daily open burning advisory line: 541-726-3976. Coastal residents may call: 541-997-1757.
