About The Event

The Okanogan Conservation District received funds to provide alternatives to back yard burning to reduce harmful particulate pollution from smoke. This is 1 of 4  pilot project being done this year. Okanogan CD and the Foster Guest Ranch HOA will be doing a free community chipping event November 12th. Debris will need to be set out before the morning of November 12th. This event is limited to residents withing the the Foster Guest Ranch community and participants must be registered before Oct 18th.  


First priority is to remove wood debris 30 feet around home. The second priority is to remove woody debris located within 100 feet of a home. Participants will have to put woody debris near the road before November 12th. Material will be chipped and the chips will be sprayed back onto the homeowners property.

Amount accepted: We are requiring participants to put no more then 4 pickup truck loads of material at the end of the driveway.

Material accepted: clean, natural, woody debris up to 10 inches in diameter and up to 10 feet in length. 

DO NOT SET OUT: lumber or construction materials, metal, seeds or cones, Russian olive, Chinese elm or other toxic material or weeds, bags of leaves or pine needles.

  • Please stack materials neatly, with all butt ends facing the same direction.  Stack material at the end of your driveway. Do not impede sidewalks and roadways. 
  • Cut bitterbrush, sage, or other open-branching plants into pieces that can feed into the chipper more easily. If material is not stacked correctly or is not clean woody debris it may not get chipped by crews. 
  • The Contractor will chip the material Novemeber 12th. The Contractor  will continue to chip debris if additional days are needed. 

Funding for this event is provided in part by a Pollution Prevention grant from the US Environmental Protection Agency.
