The first line of defense against a wildfire is to create and maintain defensible space around your home. Removing excess brush and other vegetation around your home and structures can slow the rate and intensity of an advancing wildfire. To promote these efforts, the City of Prescott is offering a free brush and vegetation drop off event for its residential trash customers.
Commercial haulers will be required to pay the standard rate for disposing of brush and vegetation debris.
The event will run every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. throughout the month of June. City of Prescott residential customers will need to self haul these items to the City of Prescott Transfer Station located at 2800 Sundog Ranch Rd. Proof of City of Prescott residency in the form of a driver’s license or utility bill is required.

Please do not bag or tie these materials. Loads that contain garbage and other materials will be required to pay a disposal fee. Please remember to cover and contain all loads when transporting them to the Transfer Station.
