Open Burning Information - No Open Burning is allowed on Red Flag Weather Days
Open Burning Allowed
There are three classifications of open burning allowed in the City of Bluffdale.
The fire code allows residents to have small recreational fires at their residence in a fire pit. The fuel area cannot exceed 6ft diameter by 3ft in height. Burning is limited to dry, clean, natural materials - no garbage, plastics, rubber, hazardous materials, oils or construction waste. Pressure treated or chemically modified lumber also may not be burned.
Open burning is only allowed in ditch banks and along fence lines November 1st to May 31st if you live on anything over 1 acre.
Smaller lot sizes are not allowed to burn due to the potential of the fire exiting your property.
Please follow these steps for ditch and fence line burning.
