OPEN AIR BURNING PERMITS
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 and you can check if the air quality is acceptable by clicking the button below.
