Burn Season is  CLOSED for 2020.  We intend on opening the 2021 season in January after several days of measurable rainfall.  Thank you for your cooperation.


Burn Season Closes May 1, 2020


On May 1, 2020, the Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services closed the 2020 burning season.  “Due to the large amount of rain and rapid increase in temperature & windy conditions has caused the grasses to dry out quickly, causing an increased fire danger”, said Fire Chief Casey Bryson. 


As alternatives, the 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. 


Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services also wants residents to get their weed abatement done quickly.  The deadline for cutting your weeds is June 1st.
