Open Air Burning Permits

Season 

January 15 - May 1

In order to be allowed to burn you must have a valid permit. Each permit is good for the duration of the burning season.

State Fire Wardens determine each day whether conditions are safe for open burning. Weather and air quality can change rapidly, especially in the spring, and fire departments can rescind permits when that happens. Air quality is determined by Mass DEP.
