Open burning of yard waste will be allowed in East Peoria April 1 through 30. Residents may burn only dry leaves and other landscape waste. Only dry material should be burned to produce as little smoke as possible.

Burning may occur only during daylight hours, in small piles on non-windy days. Per the fire chief, a burning ban will be in effect when there are sustained winds or gusts of 10 mph or more. Residents are encouraged to listen to the weather forecast for predicted wind speeds. The burn must be supervised at all times by a responsible adult and be completely extinguished when finished. A water source must be nearby.

Residents are asked to check with their neighbors prior to burning brush in case they have health problems which might be affected by smoke, so that an appropriate time to burn can be arranged.

For more information, call 698-4700 and ask for the assistant fire chief on duty.
