Spring open burning of yard waste

The spring season of open burning of yard waste materials will begin at 10 a.m. on April 1 and end at sundown on May 31.

All burning must take place from 10 a.m. until sundown. Burning is restricted to private property, must take place in the rear of the property and must be supervised at all times.

All burning must be at least 30 feet from any building inhabited by persons other than the landowner or tenant conducting the open burning.

The City of Perry encourages residents to find alternative methods to open burning for yard waste disposal.
