New DEC Rules for Burning effective October 2009:

The DEC has banned the use of burn barrels and they are now against the law. If you are caught using a burn barrel (and any law enforcement personnel can issue tickets), it is an unclassified misdemeanor and you can be fined from $375-$10,000. If you burn garbage, it is considered unlawful disposal of solid waste and the fines range from $1,500-$15,000.

The only burning that is allowed is for the time period from May 15 through the following March 15. You can only burn downed limbs and branches (including branches with attached leaves or needles) less than six inches in diameter and eight feet in length. You are no longer required to get burn permits to burn brush. All other burning is prohibited.

There is no open brush burning from March 16 through May 14 anywhere in NY.

If you have any questions, please call 887-5250 x5.
