This coming weekend, the Regional Payson Area Project for a Firewise Rim Country will staff free brush drop-off points at the following locations, weather permitting.
On Saturday, May 3, the Blattner Pit will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Blattner Pit is located at Milepost 259.7 on Highway 260, east of Payson.
On Sunday, May 4, the Pine Pit will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Pine Pit is located .7 of a mile east of Highway 87 on Control Road, south of Pine.
All RPAP free drop-off locations are for brush, leaves, pine needles, trimmings and other vegetative materials only.
Wood, branches, etc. from ponderosa pines or other trees killed by bark beetles will be accepted and will be burned.
No household garbage, construction debris, or other items will be accepted.
RPAP brush pits are intended for the use of private citizens who are working to clear their properties for wildfire risk reduction and to create defensible space around their homes. They are not intended for commercial use, and use by commercial haulers is prohibited.
