Ashland residents may drop off their yard debris free of charge during the Ashland Firewise Cleanup Day event, set for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Valley View Transfer Station, 3000 N. Valley View Road, Ashland.

The event is meant to encourage residents to remove hazardous fuels that could contribute to wildfires from their property. Welcome materials include leaves, pine needles, small branches and brush. Trash, stumps, logs, firewood and treated lumber will not be accepted.

All collected debris will be composted. The debris must be brought in plastic bags, which should be emptied on site. Participants should also bring identification that shows their name and Ashland address.
