DEL MAR–Overgrown weeds and dead foliage can fuel a fire in a matter of minutes.
To prevent the spread of deadly wildfires in the city, the Del Mar Fire Department has launched its 2020 Spring into Action and Fuel Reduction programs and is asking residents to get an early start on brush clearing to keep their property and neighborhoods safe.
The Del Mar Fire Department will offer a free inspection on the property. To sign up for an inspection, residents must contact the Del Mar Fire Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (858) 755-1522.
Del Mar residents can reserve free delivery and pickup of up to two, three-yard waste bins to fill with green waste. Reserve the bins before July 24 and fill them between July 27 and Aug. 10.
To schedule green waste bin delivery, contact Waste Management at (866) 967-3292.
