Think about the smoke you create. Don’t burn when prevailing winds will carry the smoke into your neighbors’ yards & homes. Build a dry, dirt-free, hot fire with plenty of air space and eliminate ash build up.
■ Make sure the GROUND IS CLEAN AND CLEAR of all flammable material around the burn pile for at least 10 feet.
■ A GARDEN HOSE should be kept near by and ready for use.
When the ash is dead cold (at least 14 days since the last burn), ash may be put in a plastic bag and disposed in your trash or at the Transfer Station. We ask that you bag your ash, as ash may contain heavy metals which can pollute the environment.
For Local burning information contact your local Fire District.
