Drop-Off Brush Sites

ALERT: Apple Maggot Quarantine

Much of western Chelan County, including Leavenworth, Plain and Lake Wenatchee, is under an Apple Maggot Quarantine. State law prohibits brush from a quarantine area to leave a quarantine area.

The Dryden Transfer Station is located in a pest-free area; it does not accept yard waste from the quarantine area. The county brush site in Leavenworth is for residents and businesses in the quarantine area.

How do you know if you live in the quarantine area? Visit the Washington State Department of Agriculture's online searchable map or the WSDA website.
