Backyard Burn Regulations

 

Before burning outside, contact the Linn County Burn Line at 541-451-1904.  The number will connect you with an automated message that is updated daily and informs you whether or not burning is allowed.

MATERIALS THAT CANNOT BE BURNED AT ANY TIME:
DEQ regulations prohibit open burning of the following materials at any time, anywhere in the state of Oregon:

  • Rubber products, including tires

  • Asbestos products

  • Animal remains

  • Plastic

  • Wet garbage

  • Petroleum and petroleum-treated debris

  • Asphalt or industrial waste

  • Any material that creates dense smoke or noxious odors

  • Auto parts and wire insulation

This means the use of a tire, gasoline, diesel and other like products to ignite a fire is also prohibited. To ignite, we recommend covering the pile (or part of it if it’s large) to keep it dry, then starting with paper and a match.

For general questions about backyard burning and prohibited materials please use the following contact information.  All inquiries about burn regulations will be referred to the DEQ.
