Is burning permitted?
East Marlborough discourages burning; the Township prohibits the smoke and air pollution that travels onto neighbors’ property. It is impossible to burn leaves at any time without creating dangerous and bothersome smoke. The dry brush can sometimes be burned, PROVIDED that there is no wind to carry any smoke, odors, or sparks onto adjacent properties. SECCRA Landfill, on Route 926, will accept bagged leaves, as well as branches and brush. The material must be transported in a covered vehicle. Please consider your neighbors and the environment before igniting any brush fires.
