It’s no secret. Older, uncertified wood stoves and inserts are dirty, less efficient and pollute the air – both inside your home and the air around your neighborhood.
It will also be illegal to own or operate an uncertified wood stove in the Tacoma/Pierce Smoke Reduction Zone after October 1, 2015. Find out more about the Wood Stove Rule and enter your address in the map to determine if you live in the Smoke Reduction Zone.
Funding is now available to help remove, recycle or replace the estimated 24,000 uncertified devices in the Tacoma-Pierce County Smoke Reduction Zone. If you live within this zone and have an old or uncertified stove or fireplace insert, we can help you move on to better heat.
