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.
We are currently offering wood stove programs for residents within the Tacoma-Pierce County Smoke Reduction Zone and the greater Pierce County area.
On the map below, the red area shows the Tacoma-Pierce County Smoke Reduction Zone Wood Stove Program boundary. The blue area shows the greater Pierce County Wood Stove Recycle Program boundary.
Program Ended - Greater Pierce County Residents
For a limited time, Pierce County residents (blue area) outside of the Smoke Reduction Zone can get $350 to recycle their old wood stove.
Smoke Reduction Zone Residents
Wood Stove Program is out of funding and on hold. We hope to restart the program in late September 2015 provided we receive new grant funding. Our last program provided the following incentives, program details and incentive levels will be announced late summer or early fall 2015.
If you live within the Tacoma-Pierce County Smoke Reduction Zone and have an old or uncertified wood stove or fireplace insert, we can help you move on to better heat.
Have you heard it will be illegal to own or operate an uncertified wood stove in the Smoke Reduction Zone after October 1, 2015? If you live in this zone, find out more about the rule by visiting the Wood Stove Rule page.
