Over the past few years many municipalities and counties have realized the dangers of allowing open burning. While burning has traditionally been a means of destroying waste as well as land clearing; there are significant risks involved. From the spreading of the fire from one home/yard to another to the pollution caused by the smoke and debris particles many are seeking other alternatives. This is why we advise you to exercise extreme caution before beginning any type of open burning.
You also need to know if your city or county has an active ordinance to regulate burning.
For your convenience we provide links to the following ordinances that affect our community.
We have also included a link to DHEC regulations that affect the entire state.
