Agricultural Burning

Commercial Agricultural Burning

May be allowed ONLY if TVF&R does not have a High-Fire Danger Burn Ban in place.

Definition:

Agricultural burning is limited to genuine agricultural waste. Agricultural waste is material generated by an agricultural operation that uses, or intends to use, land primarily for the purpose of obtaining a profit in money by raising, harvesting and selling crops, or raising and selling animals (including poultry), or the products of animal husbandry. Prohibited materials cannot be burned, even in an agricultural setting. (Prohibited materials are listed in the linked fact sheet below.)

Additional DEQ Information:

TVF&R does not enforce DEQ rules, however, it is very important to understand additional DEQ rules related to backyard burning to avoid fines and other penalties. See the DEQ Fact Sheet for more information.
