The Olympic Region Clean Air Agency (ORCAA) works to protect air quality for its citizens. One of the primary pollutants within ORCAA’s jurisdiction is fine Particulate Matter (PM2.5) and the main source of that pollutant is burning. With the removal of just 120 solid-fuel home heating devices from the community, residents will reduce emissions by 20 tons of PM2.5 per year.
To help reduce the amount of PM2.5 in all six counties within our jurisdiction ORCAA has secured a Wood Smoke Reduction grant from the Washington Department of Ecology to provide wood stove RECYCLING AWARDS.
The following terms apply:
This Wood Stove Recycling Award is available for residents of Clallam, Grays Harbor, Jefferson, Mason, Pacific, and Thurston Counties. The funding is provided by the Washington Department of Ecology through a Wood Smoke Reduction Grant.
To participate, residents of those counties must remove and destroy a wood stove or fireplace insert that is NOT compliant with EPA’s 2020 New Source Performance Standards.
Residents who qualify for the above may receive the RECYCLING AWARD of $500 to remove and destroy that old, uncertified wood burning appliance.
