  •Only natural vegetative material such as leaves, pine needles and tree trimmings may be burned.

  •Household garbage may not be burned.

  •Do not burn on windy days.

  •You cannot burn in a burn barrel unless you live in an area where it is permissible.  Contact your APCD to determine if you live in one of these areas.

  •You do not need a burn permit until May 1, 2011.
