Burn Permits

To obtain a burn permit for the Town of Orangeville you should attend the Orangeville Fire Service at 10 Dawson Road to apply.

To have your Burn Permit approved you must have an inspection completed by the Orangeville Fire Service. During this inspection, the service will check for compliance to the bylaw in regard to the location and condition of the fire bowl, chiminea or outdoor fireplace, and to ensure that are no obstructions in the area. The bylaw states that the burning container must be 3.0 metres (9 feet, 10 inches) from any building, structure, property line, tree, hedge, fence, roadway, overhead wire, other combustible article or obstruction. 

Be sure read the Town of Orangeville's Outdoor Fire Bylaw  and if you have any questions contact us, we're happy to help! 

Please be advised that all current permit holders must renew their permits every calendar year (January-December). Fees are $30 per year (cash or cheque only).
