…..BURN PERMITS…..

Remember to get those burn permits before you burn.

NEW TRASH BURNING RESTRICTIONS TAKE EFFECT THIS OCTOBER

On April 19 Public Act 102 of 2012 was signed into law, prohibiting the open burning of household trash that contains plastic, rubber, foam, chemically treated wood, textiles, electronics, chemicals or hazardous materials.  The burning of these household trash items pose a danger to human health and the environment.  The law amends the open burning provisions contained in Section 11522 of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act(Public Act 451 of 1994).  The changes take effect on October 16, 2012 and contain penalty provisions, which may be enforced by local units of government, should a local ordinance not exist.
