Wood Burning Prohibited Symbol

Please Burn Cleanly
To keep air pollution levels low, if you must burn, please burn cleanly. This includes using an EPA Phase II-certified wood-burning device and burning dry, seasoned wood. More clean-burning tips:
Please Burn Cleanly
  • Never burn trash, magazines, newspapers, plastics or other materials not designed to burn in fireplaces or stoves. This is illegal and hazardous.
  • For an ambiance fire in an open fireplace, a manufactured firelog may be a cleaner alternative to wood.
Exemptions to wood-burning prohibitions:  You may use your wood-burning fireplace or device on a prohibited day if:
  • You live in an area where there is no natural-gas service, or
  • If wood-burning is your only source of heat.
