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 offer wood stove programs for residents within the Tacoma-Pierce County Smoke Reduction Zone.
On the map below, the red area shows the Tacoma-Pierce County Smoke Reduction Zone Wood Stove Program boundary.
Smoke Reduction Zone Residents
As of October 1, 2015, it is illegal to own or operate an uncertified wood stove in the Smoke Reduction Zone. If you live in this zone, find out more about the rule by visiting the Wood Stove Rule page.
If you have an old or uncertified wood stove or fireplace insert, we can help you move on to better heat! Program funds were just granted and the Wood Stove Program will start again at the end of October.
