Don't burn, there are options for clearing brush and yard debris

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- As you clean-up yard debris after Monday's wind storm the Department of Ecology wants to remind you not to burn it. 

Burn barrels are illegal in Washington and any sort of burning is illegal if you're in the urban growth area. Ecology wants you to know about composting and other disposal options in your area.

To find out what options are available head to the Web site: http://www.ecy.wa.gov/programs/air/outdoor_woodsmoke/alternativestoburn.htm
