2022 Burn Season CLOSED!


Burn Season Closes May 1, 2022


On May 1, 2022, Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services will close the 2022 Burn Season.  “The lack of rain and increase in temperatures have caused the grasses to dry out quickly, causing an increased fire danger,” said Fire Chief Casey Bryson.  Residents must call the burn line at (805) 461-5070, Option 8 to check the burn day status leading up to the closure of Burn Season.


As alternatives, Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services encourages residents to utilize the Green Waste Recycling Program through Atascadero Waste Alternatives.  Please check with Atascadero Waste Alternatives for your area’s pick-up days. 


In addition, Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services would like for residents to get their weed abatement done quickly.  As conditions change, please plan to mow before 10 AM and maintain weeds at 4 inches.  Deadline for cutting weeds is June 1st!


For questions regarding this information, please contact Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services at 805-461-5070.
