Burn Permits

New York State has a statewide ban on open burning between March 15th and May 15th.

Wildfires can be prevented by using safe alternatives such as chipping and composting.

Remember that it is never legal to burn garbage.


Burn permits were turned over to the Stephentown Code Enforcement in compliance with a new law that became effective 10/1/2016.
