GREENSTONE—Permits are required for all recreational, (campfire, fire pit etc.) and non-recreational (brush pile, grass etc.) fires within the Municipality of Greenstone.

The Municipality wants to let its residents know that it strives to keep everyone safe with fire safety and fire prevention measures, and wishes to remind them of their open air burn bylaw 22-47. In addition the new open air burning permits are now available.

This bylaw separates open air burns into two categories, recreational and non-recreational. There currently is no fee for a recreational burn and a minimal fee for a non-recreational burn. All permits can be registered by visiting: greenstone.burnpermits.com

According to the municipality Facebook notice: “All burns are only permitted after receiving your permit number and a permit is to be obtained for each type of open air burn and only one fire is permitted to be actively burning at one time. Burn permits are required for each address a ratepayer owns, including camps, cottages, etc.”
