Burning household garbage

Strathcona County residents are not permitted to burn household garbage such as plastics, food scraps and other garbage. They're harmful to the environment and are not pleasant to smell when burned. Rural residents wanting to do any kind of open burning must apply for a fire permit. Open fires are not permitted in urban or rural hamlets.
