Fire Pits & Burn Barrels
Before installing a fire pit or burn barrel on your property, there are a few things to consider:
- Position your burn barrel/incinerator at least 30 metres away from any structures or standing timber.
- If a Fire Ban is issued your fire permit will be suspended or cancelled and your fire must be extinguished.
To apply for a fire pit permit, or to determine if you need one, view the map [PDF - 19.7 MB] or contact the County office at 780-532-9727.
