Borrow a Weed Wrench Program

Borrow a “weed wrench” and get the job done easier


A weed wrench is an extremely helpful tool for removing established weeds.  As part of our campaign to remove the broom in the area, the Butte Fire Safe Council has adopted a weed wrench lending program.  Call us at 877-0984 for additional information or to borrow a weed wrench.

Cost: Free for current members. A $100.00 check deposit is required when borrowing the weed wrenches. Upon the return of the weed wrench, you will receive your check back.

Quantity: Two weed wrenches may be borrowed at one time for individuals/families;  four weed wrenches may be borrowed at one time for community groups.

Loan Period:  Two weeks maximum. Tools may be borrowed again if there is no one on the waiting list.
