☷ City of Reno Nevada - Reno Fire Department announces free disposal of dangerous vegetation 24 June 2022

City of Reno , state Nevada

   The
   Reno Fire Department
    ( RFD ) is pleased to announce the second year of a program to assist homeowners with protecting their homes from wildfire . Dumpsters for vegetation disposal will be located at Reno Fire Station 3 located at 580 W . Moana Lane from June 25 – June 27 , 2022 .
   The Reno Home Wildland Fuels Reduction Program assists homeowners bordering the wildland - urban interface communities of Reno to provide defensible space on their property . Creating defensible space is a key element to reducing the threat and effects of a wildland fire . The green waste dumpsters at the station will be made available to the public until full .
   If you are located in a Reno community that borders the wildland - urban interface , you may qualify for a neighborhood dumpster to haul away dead vegetation and overgrowth . If available , you can reserve a dumpster at no cost . We require a neighborhood responsible to monitor that only vegetative waste is placed in the dumpster and that the dumpster is secured closed once full . The program is made possible through grants obtained from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Waste Management . The 30 - yard dumpsters are delivered every Thursday and picked up every Monday .
   The program dumpsters are only for disposal of “vegetative waste” or “yard debris/refuse” - plants that grow on the property . Construction materials , manmade materials , and bags are not allowed . Do not place the vegetative waste in the dumpster in bags .
   The purpose of this program is to give our community a tool to reduce the amount of fuel immediately surrounding your home . As we have seen with the Pinehaven and Caughlin fires , embers from a wildfire can travel a great distance before landing on combustible vegetation in your yard .
   To check for dumpster availability please call our main office at ( 775 ) 334 - 2300 . Priority is given to neighborhoods that border the wildland - urban interface .
   The fire safety goal of landscaping and maintenance is very simple: reduce the amount of fuel immediately surrounding your home . This does not mean your property has to be barren . Some plants are more fire - resistive than others . One of the most important things a homeowner can do is to create a safety zone or fire break around the house using space and fire - resistive planting . You can reduce your chances of being a wildfire fire victim by doing the following:
   0 feet to 5 feet from your home
   The Immediate Zone is closest to your house and the most vulnerable .
   
   Remove any combustible outdoor furniture . Replace jute or fiber door mats with fire - resistant materials .
   
   Remove or relocate all combustible materials , including garbage and recycling containers , lumber and trash .
   
   Clean all fallen leaves and needles regularly . Repeat often during fire season .
   
   Remove tree limbs that extend into this zone . We recommended no combustible vegetation within five feet of structures .
   
   Do not store firewood , lumber or combustibles under decks or overhangs .
   
   Use only inorganic , non - combustible mulches such as stone or gravel .
   5 feet to 30 feet from your home
   The Intermediate Zone may include buildings , structures , decks , etc . Keep this area “Lean , Clean , and Green . ”
   
   Remove dead plants , dead grass , dry leaves and pine needles from your yard , roof and rain gutters .
   
   Trim trees regularly to keep branches a minimum of 10 feet from other trees .
   
   Remove branches that hang over your roof , and keep dead branches 10 feet away from your chimney .
   
   Relocate piles of wood or debris 30 feet from any structures .
   
   Remove vegetation and items that could catch fire from around and under decks .  
   30 feet to 100 feet from your home
   The Extended Zone may even include space of more than 100 feet if you live on a steep south - facing slope .
   
   Cut or mow annual grass down to a maximum height of four inches .
   
   Try not to allow fallen needles and leaves to exceed a depth of 3 inches .
   For more information , contact the RFD’s Division of Fire Prevention at ( 775 ) 334 - 2300 .
