Open Burning and Permits


The Bureau of Environmental Health will no longer enforce the Maryland Department of the Environment's laws and regulations concerning the review and issuance of Open Burning Permits. At this point there is no agency which can issue Open Burning permits or recieve complaints about oben burning. 

    


           Maryland regulations (COMAR 26.11.07.03B) ban open fires from
           June 1-August 31 each year.  There are special exceptions for
           agricultural operations, and open fires for recreational purposes
           such as campfires and cooking of food.
