Outdoor Burning Ban in Effect
Due to HIGH FIRE DANGER, all outdoor burning is banned in Gwinnett County.
The ban on outdoor burning includes the burning of all yard waste and debris (leaves, branches, twigs, and pine straw), commercial land clearing, and pit burns as well as the discontinuance of permits for all bonfires.
At this time the ban on outdoor burning does not include commercially available fire bowls, fire pits, chimineas, or masonry outdoor fireplaces. Only clean, untreated wood should be used in these devices.
The ban on outdoor burning is temporary and will be rescinded when significant rainfall has occurred and the drought conditions have improved substantially. Contact the Gwinnett County Fire Marshal’s office at 678.518.4980, Monday through Friday between 8:00am and 5:00pm, with questions.
