Regional burn ban is over, but conditional restrictions apply

Safe outdoor burning will be permitted as early as Oct. 1, depending on weather conditions.

As of Oct.1, the Atlanta Metro Area’s seasonal burn ban, which is mandated by the State of Georgia, is over until May 1, 2019, but there are still restrictions on what can be legally burned outdoors, even with a formal, state-issued permit.

While some jurisdicitons apply additonal regulations to outdoor burning, the City of Fayetteville defers to state guidelines, which are found at www.epd.georgia.gov/air.

State open burning permits may be obtained online by visiting www.gatrees.org/OnlinePermits or by calling 1-877-OK2BURN.
