Do’s and Dont’s for Outdoor Burning


  • Call your local officials (for example, your city or county code enforcement office, your local fire department, or your city or county environmental health department) to make sure that burning is not against any local law, such as a city ordinance. Also make sure that a burn ban is not in place for your area (to prevent wildfires, counties often ban burning during dry weather).
  • Burn only allowable trash (see below) and landclearing debris that was generated at the residence.


  • Don’t create a traffic hazard: make sure that smoke doesn’t blow across roads.
  • Don’t burn anything that may create excessive smoke or toxic fumes, such as plastic, tires, or shingles.
  • Don’t burn trash or anything else from a business.
  • Don’t cause a nuisance: make sure you don’t smoke out your neighbors.
  • Don’t burn anything during a Burn Ban or during a Red Flag Warning.

Attention: Small kitchen fire extinguishers are available for purchase at the Fire Department for $10.
