BURNING BARRELS / OPEN BURNING
Using burning barrels for garbage disposal is illegal in Cass County. You must dispose of garbage at one of the transfer sites, or have it picked up by a licensed hauler. With few exceptions, building material wastes must go to Construction and Demolition sites.
The only material that can lawfully be burned with a permit and under certain conditions are brush, tree trimmings, and other vegetative material, and unpainted lumber that contains no glue or resins.
Unless the ground is snow covered, any open burning of vegetative material requires a burning permit from the Regional US Forest Service office, local DNR Forestry office, local fire warden or online. Additional information can be found on the DNR's website.
