With the end of fire season; the City of Bend Fire Department opens outdoor debris burning within Deschutes County Rural Fire Protection District Number 2.
Campfires, recreational fires, warming fires and cooking fires may be permitted provided proper safety precautions are followed.
The Bend Fire Department strongly recommends that if you do burn debris; do so early in the day, before winds pick up that could spread to nearby combustibles.
As an alternative to burning yard debris, October 29th through November 10th, Deschutes Recycling is lowering it's fees to $2 a yard for dead leaves, pine needles and branches.
