Backyard Debris Burning is now Prohibited
By ordinance passed by City Council, the outdoor burning of yard debris is now prohibited year round within Hillsboro city limits. This became effective November 20, 2015. It falls in alignment with Washington County's efforts to reduce air pollution and remain below the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality air particulate maximums.
Please see the City's Air Quality page for alternatives to yard debris burning. For general questions about the policy, call 503-681-6219.
