Green Waste


Green Waste

The 2020 Free Residential Green Waste Event is now over. See you next year!

The Fire Safe Council of Nevada County, the County of Nevada Office of Emergency Services, and the Northern Sierra Air Quality Management District partnered to dramatically expand the 2020 Free Residential Green Waste Event to six weeks and four collection sites. 

Residents made great use of the 2020 COVID-19 stay-at-home orders by spending time on improving defensible space around homes and property lines. We're grateful to our funding partners, to the companies that donated the use of their collection sites, to our many dedicated volunteers, and to the wonderful residents of Nevada County. Great work, everyone.

If you enjoyed this service, don't forget to thank your Nevada County District Supervisor. Consider supporting the ongoing efforts of the Fire Safe Council of Nevada County by becoming a member.

Stay tuned for our Free Residential Green Waste Collection Event in the spring of 2021.
