As of April 29, 2021, the residential burning of wood yard debris (limbs and leaves) in small piles is currently allowed without a permit. With fire season quickly approaching, field grasses are quickly drying and can easily carry fire from a small burn pile to nearby structures, so please burn wisely. The area surrounding each burn pile must be scraped to bare earth. In addition, the burn pile must be attended at all times, have a charged hose and shovel nearby, and be fully extinguished before dark. We recommend burning early in the morning when nearby grasses are covered with dew and when winds are calm.
Oregon law prohibits the burning of treated wood, garbage, styrofoam, plastics, rubber, carpet or foam padding, roofing materials, or any other items which emit dense smoke, toxic chemicals, or noxious odors.
