Since the early 1990s, programs for reducing emissions from motor vehicles, issuing permits for businesses and industries, reducing outdoor burning emissions, and monitoring air quality around the state have helped improve air quality significantly.
Ecology is working collaboratively with federal, state, and local agencies, citizens, and industry partners to provide quality service and products.
But it is not enough. Ecology alone won’t be able to keep the air clean; we need your help. This year, choose to be the difference. Choose not to burn your yard debris, and choose to find an alternative. Visit our website for resources and more information.
