LANE COUNTY — The fall outdoor burning season will open on Saturday, Oct. 15 for many Lane County residents. The season, originally set to start Oct. 1, was 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.

“We have certainly passed the peak of fire season,” said Lane Regional Air Protection Agency (LRAPA) spokesperson, Travis Knudsen. “However, Lane County is dry and there is minimal moisture in the forecast.”

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 Oct. 15. 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.
