Burn Permits (new 2017)

To burn in the Town of Orangeville, a Burn Permit must be obtained.

To obtain a burn permit you should attend the Orangeville Fire Department located at 10 Dawson Road, and apply. To have your permit approved you must have a home inspection completed by the Orangeville Fire Department. During this inspection we will be checking for working smoke alarms on every level of the house and working CO alarms on all levels that have sleeping areas. The crew will also be checking for the placement and condition of the fire bowl, chiminea or outdoor fireplace.  The Town of Orangeville is divided into four sectors, and we inspect each sector one day per week on a rotating basis Thursdays & Fridays from 1-5 p.m. and Saturdays & Sundays from 9 a.m.to 12 p.m.

Be aware of the Town of Orangeville's Outdoor Fire Bylaw #110-2016.
