Outdoor Burn Ordinance

Do you know your current ordinance?

An EPA report published in November 1997 shows that a single household burn barrel may emit as much toxic chemicals as a well-controlled municipal incinerator. “Major sources” of pollution, such as incinerators and factories, have been regulated for years. Now, DEP is focusing on educating the public about the impact of smaller sources – such as open burning – on air quality. Source Department of Environmental Protection¬†
