On September 26, 2020 the residents of Sierra Brooks had the opportunity to participate in a community-wide green waste clean-up event. This annual event took place as one of the first stages in becoming a Firewise Community offering a chance for home owners to get involved in increasing defensible space around their homes. As a result, an estimated 319 yards of green waste was removed from Sierra Brooks, with the Loyalton Cogen reporting 22,460 pounds of that amount being delivered directly to their facility.
The Sierra Brooks Firewise Community Volunteer Group would like to thank the following people and businesses as this day would not have been possible without them; Sierra Valley Enterprises, LLC (Jeff Holland, Kirk Furlong-Wentworth, Jim Turner and Bonnie Richards), Intermountain Disposal, Inc., Sierra County Road Department (Tim Beals, Rob Moore and crew), Sierra County Fire Safe Council, Inc., Loyalton Volunteer Fire Department (Shawn Heywood and crew), Sierra Brooks Home Owners Association, Boy Scouts Troop #60 (Derrick Koch and kids), members of the Loyalton Football Team and FFA, Supervisor Dryden and local community members.
We thank you for your time and amazing hard work and cannot express enough how grateful we are to have had this turnout.
