Burn banThe Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) open burning ban went into effect for 54 Georgia counties on Sunday, May 1, 2016. The open burning ban has been in place during the summer ozone season since 2005.
The open burning ban prohibits citizens and businesses from burning yard and land-clearing debris from May 1 through September 30. This restriction is in addition to a ban on the burning of household garbage, which is enforced year-round throughout Georgia.
Citizens are reminded that these rules are in place to protect public health. A person’s health may be negatively impacted by the chemicals and pollutants found in the smoke released from fires.
For more information, visit http://goo.gl/NmbrYM. A special Thank you goes out to the City of Villa Rica for this information!
