UPDATED BURN PILE RULES:  MAY 2013


The burn pile is located on the unpaved road at the end of Fawn Ridge.  Proceed down Fawn Ridge to the end of the street and you will see an unpaved road.  Drive slowly down the unpaved road as it is very rough and uneven.  Drive until you see a brush pile in the clearing to the left.  Be careful, the road ends in the river.  If you hit water you have gone too far!

ONLY trees, shrubs, leaves, and other wood products should be placed on the burn pile.  Stack brush up, not out flat.  Do not place material near the road.  The pile burns best when it is stacked high. 

NO PLASTIC CONTAINERS

 

NO GARBAGE BAGS

 

NO GLASS

 

NO HARDWARE/CONSTRUCTION DEBRIS, SUCH AS DOOR KNOBS, HINGES, OR METAL OF ANY KIND


Construction waste (boards ex) should not be put in the burn pile because they may contain nails, staples, etc. or covered/treated by chemicals (ex: paint or treated lumber).

Please do NOT put trash bags in the burn pile

 

While all residents are encouraged to use the burn pile by placing the APPROVED burnable items on the pile, 
ONLY MEMBERS OF THE BURN PILE COMMITTEE ARE AUTHORIZED TO BURN THE PILE.  
This is for the safety of our community.  
Thank you for your cooperation!
