2022 Open Burning Permits

Register & Apply for a Permit Today! Permit Applications for the 2022 season is open. Open Burning is allowed from January 15 to May 1 between 10am and 4pm. On any day you plan to burn, you must log into your account and activate your permit any time after 8am or before 2pm. If you are unable to activate your permit, it is because outdoor burning is not allowed on that day, which occurs from time to time throughout the season.
