- Brush Day Will Be Different (and Later) This Year!
Brush Day continues to evolve, and this year it will be part of the County Fire Department's scheduled road clearance work. When roadside vegetation trimming and clearing is scheduled for your road, homeowners can then bring their brush to the street for chipping and hauling away. That's the good news.
The unfortunate news is that the county brush crew has been working on the Refugio oil spill, and their schedule remains tentative. If you have brush you need cleared now, you may take it on your own to the county dump. MarBorg also has a green tag program that will take away a limited amount of brush.
If you can wait — and the schedule now looks like maybe late June or July/August — the anticipated work schedule follows. Please keep in mind that it could change depending on where else the crew is needed. They expect to start the second week of July in the following order.
• Mission Canyon Road (plus community chipping)
• Tunnel Road clearance (plus community chipping)
• Las Canoas Road clearance (plus community chipping)
• Tunnel Trail clearance
• Olive Grove Fuelbreak
• Holly Road Fuelbreak (plus community chipping)
• Tunnel Trailhead Fuelbreak
• Mission Canyon Fuelbreak
• Spyglass Fuelbreak (plus community chipping)
• Edison Road clearance

The work is part of a two-year $326,000 grant achieved by Captain Rob Hazard, who is County Fire's vegetation manager. Mission Canyon Association will provide dates and schedules as soon as we know them. Information will also be posted and updated at here as it becomes available.
