Hiwan Hills had a quite successful slash collection this weekend.  I don’t know exactly how much was collected, but it was at least several roll off dumpsters.  Great job to the residents there for helping to keep the land clear. It’s a great step to help prevent wildfires in the area.

JeffCo is sponsoring more slash collection this year.  From their site:
