- Open Burning Information
The open burn period is currently CLOSED. The burning period runs from April 1st - October 31st, and requires a valid (current year only - not expired) and approved CDPHE permit be obtained prior to open burning. Fire department notification and approval are also required for all burning activity, even if the activity is permit-exempt, on the day of burning. Burning cannot be preapproved. Permit applications for 2024 can be submitted to CDPHE starting spring of 2024..
