Burn Permits

The burning season will start on January 15th, 2021 and the last day of the burning season will be May 1st, 2021.  Residents are strongly encouraged to get their burning done early because burning will be very limited if we have a dry spring.

 

  • Brush burning permits will be available for purchase starting January 4th, 2021.

  • Cost is $10.00. Make checks payable to the Town of Duxbury.  Burning permits will be processed by MAIL-IN or DROP-OFF ONLY. 

  • Mail-In: Send in your $10 check to D.F.D. @ 668 Tremont St, Duxbury, MA  02332 and include a self-addressed stamped envelope.  

  • Drop-off: Address your “unsealed” self-addressed stamped envelope and include your $10 check and drop it off at 668 Tremont St. Please include a cell # and burning address on your check. Allow 1-2 days for processing. Plan your purchases early.

Burning without a 2021 permit is a violation and burning privileges will be revoked for the remainder of the burning season.

Burning permits are ONLY for burning brush, cane, driftwood, and forestry products.  Burning of leaves, grass, hay, straw, stumps, finished lumber, or construction debris is strictly prohibited and doing so will be cause for immediate revocation of the permit. Burning must be done on land proximate to where the brush is generated. It must be done at least 75 feet from a dwelling, and adequate resources must be available to immediately extinguish the fire if requested to do so by a fire official.  Burning will only be permitted when weather and wind conditions are acceptable.
