Officials at Lassen National Forest are reminding area residents that it is illegal to dump private green waste on public lands. Despite the ban there have been several recent occurrences of green waste dumping around Lake Almanor.
“Dumping private yard waste on public lands is a fineable offense,” said Almanor District Recreation Officer Stacy Kronner.
“Yard waste may have been treated with fertilizers, or it may host invasive species that could damage the forest landscape and our waterways.”
Green waste should be disposed of at an appropriate facility. Feather River Disposal is a local service provider that accepts lawn clippings, brush and tree trimmings, wood chips, and more.
