2020 burn season in Atascadero opens for fire hazard reduction 

prescribed burn slo county

–Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services has officially opened the Fire Hazard Reduction Burn Season. The burn day status, whether it is a permissive burn day or not, changes daily and is determined by the California Air Resources Board and north county weather conditions. Residents must obtain the daily burn day status by calling (805) 461-5070, Option 8.

Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services strongly encourages residents to utilize alternative forms of disposal, such as the Waste Alternatives’ Green Waste recycling container or the Chicago Grade Landfill. Burning should be used as a last resort. Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services has a zero-tolerance policy and will issue citations for violations of the burning regulations.

Copies of Atascadero’s Burn Regulations and various waste alternative programs are available here.
