Check Before You Burn

Open Burning Ban In Effect

Open Burning Ban is in effect from December 1, 2020 until February 28, 2021. Open Burning Seasonal permits will not be issued during this time. 

There are many alternatives to open burning in the City of Abbotsford. By not burning your waste, you’re helping to preserve the air quality in the sensitive Fraser Valley airshed. Open burning not only poses serious health risks to the people who are burning, but also exposes their families, pets, neighbours and the surrounding community to the toxic chemicals found in smoke.
