As the nice weather approaches we often get questions about fire pits. Are they legal? Where can i put them? when can i burn them?...  The information below is directly from  Copy and paste the URL below to navigate to the Open Burning Page at for additional information. 



 What about fire pits?


Fire pits have become popular in recent years. But unless they are being used primarily for cooking, they are technically subject to the MassDEP open burning regulation. If you do use a fire pit for cooking, the fire must be:


    Kept to a reasonable size

    Located away from combustible materials

    Contained in a non-flammable enclosure, and

    Tended by someone who is 18 years of age or older.


Remember to burn only clean, dry firewood. This will minimize the amount of smoke leaving your property and affecting neighbors. You may not burn trash, refuse or similar materials.
