Saturday, October 1, 2022

Open Burning Permitted October 1 to February 14

Opening burn is allowed from October 1 to February 14 except when not otherwise prohibited as outlined in the Open Burning Prohibited section. Open burning is permitted for the burning of leaves, trees, brush, yard and garden trimmings generated on-site, where street side trash service is not available for this purpose.

Open burning is allowed under the following conditions:

  • All such open burning must be reported to the Loudoun County Fire and Rescue Emergency Communications Center (ECC) at 703-777-0637 prior to ignition and when the fire is extinguished.
  • Open burning may be no closer than 50 feet from a structure.
  • Fires shall be attended by competent persons 18 years of age or older, at all times, with provisions for control available.
  • If at any time the fire is not attended and/or a means of extinguishment not immediately available, it must be fully extinguished.

Open burning that is offensive or objectionable because of smoke or odor emissions or when atmospheric conditions or local circumstances make such fires hazardous shall be prohibited.

The Fire Marshal can institute a burn ban for any reason if conditions warrant.
