  • Burning permits are required for any open air burning;
  • No open-air burning is permitted between the hours of 8:00am and 6:00pm;

  • Keep your fire small, only burn what you can effectively control;
  • You may only burn dry woody type materials. You may not burn grass, garbage, petroleum products, plastics, rubber, or anything that will cause excessive smoke;
  • Respect your neighbour, don’t burn where smoke will bother your neighbour or blow across roadways and hamper visibility;
  • Stay with your fire, you must take all necessary steps to tend the fire, keep it under control, and make sure it is extinguished before leaving the site. A responsible person (18 years of age or older) must be present to supervise the fire at all times.
