Open Burning

Open Burning

In general, businesses may not open burn.

Private homes in unincorporated areas may burn only untreated wood & paper products in a barrel with a mesh screen as per Indiana Rule 326 IAC 4-1.  It is ALWAYS illegal to burn garbage!

If you open burn & it becomes a nuisance, you must extinguish the fire immediately.  To learn more, please read IDEM’s Burning trash or yard waste in Indiana?.
