   Wednesday, June 15 is the last day for spring outdoor burning in Lane County.

LANE COUNTY — Wednesday, June 15, 2022, is the final day for outdoor burning in Lane County until October. The season will close as scheduled according to Title 47 of LRAPA’s rules which define the opening and closing of Lane County’s burning seasons. Spring burning is only permitted through June 15.

Yard debris may not be burned during the closed season. However, removing overgrown vegetation is important work to defend against wildfires. Lane Forest Products, Rexius, or Lane County’s transfer stations and dumpsites are resources available to the community to dispose of debris. Composting and chipping are also encouraged.

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

Residents who burn during the closed season are subject to violations ranging from $50 to

$2,500 or more.

The fall open burning season is scheduled to open on October 1, however the Lane County Fire Defense Board has authority to delay the opening due to high fire risk.

Check on the season’s status by visiting www.lrapa.org, or calling the LRAPA daily open burning advisory line: 541-726-3976. Coastal residents may call: 541-997-1757.
