UPDATE: Burn to be rescheduled at Leavenworth site

A one-day burn planned for Nov. 14 has been cancelled at this time in anticipation of poor weather conditions.

The burn planned at Chelan County Public Works' county-owned property at the intersection of East Leavenworth and Icicle roads will be rescheduled.

The one-day burn is permitted by the Washington State Department of Ecology. The material to be burned is dry, organic waste collected at the county’s Leavenworth brush drop-off site that was dropped off by residents living in the unincorporated area of Chelan County’s Apple Maggot Quarantine Area. 

The county crew will be monitoring the weather, including any air stagnation warnings, and onsite ground conditions to determine the optimal time window for the burn. Plans are highly weather dependent. The burn may be rescheduled if a ban is put in place by Ecology or Chelan County.

Once a burn date is confirmed, a public service announcement will be issued by the county. The announcement will be sent out on the solid waste ListServ and to local media outlets. It also will be posted to the:

State law prohibits brush from a quarantine area to leave a quarantine area. The Leavenworth site was opened in 2017 to accommodate those citizens and businesses living and working in the quarantine area of Chelan County, which includes much of the Leavenworth, Plain and Lake Wenatchee areas.

A second brush pile at the county pit that was collected from people living in the Urban Growth Area around Leavenworth will not be burned because it does not have a burn permit at this time.
