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.

 

Unless otherwise noted, the general rule is the following things are not allowed at public drop-off brush sites: grass clippings, sod, root wads, noxious weeds, lumber (treated or untreated), plastic bags or tree limbs more than 14 inches in diameter at their base. Keep limbs to no more than 6 to 8 feet in length.
