Chipper Program A Success!

August 13, 2021

Thank you to our community members who put in an estimated 2316 hours of labor to deliver over 805 loads of burnable material to our chipping program, reducing the amount of dangerous fuel around our homes.

Of the 197 households who participated this year, 80 were doing so for the first time. This is collectively a huge effort on your part to make our town more resilient and safer for all of us.

Open Burn Status

Open burning is restricted in San Mateo County. Read on to learn more.

The widgets to the left help determine, at a glance, if burning with a permit is allowed. At a minimum

  1. You must have a burn permit

  2. There must be no Spare The Air alert

  3. The Coast Section status for today must say "Burn" (not "No Burn"). You may call (800) 792-0787 for a voice recording of the current burn status.

If you do not have a permit, or you are not familiar with the process, do not proceed with open burning.
