No leaf burning

Open Burning
Landscape Waste

Spring seems to have finally arrived. With the arrival of the warmer weather, yard clean up is underway. The Police have been very busy this week responding to calls of residents burning landscape waste. Listed below is an exert from the Village Code regarding burning in the Village.

Any and all burning in the village shall be in accordance with the following restrictions:

         1.  The open burning of brush shall occur only on the property upon which the brush                was generated subject to the following restrictions:

a. Burning is permitted only on sunny days between nine o'clock (9:00)            A.M. and three o'clock (3:00) P.M.

b. Burning is not permitted when the wind is in excess of ten (10)              miles per hour

c. Burning is not permitted within twenty feet (20') of any building, structure,      property line, or combustible material. 

d. Burning is not permitted when it is determined and announced by the              county health department that inversion conditions or an ozone alert exists.

e. Brush shall be dry when burned.

f. Burning is not permitted on public or private roads, alleys, sidewalks or           easements.

g. All open burning must be supervised until the fire is extinguished.

h. A fire extinguisher or garden hose or water source shall be available at            the burning site.

i. It is the responsibility of the individual conducting the burning and                   the owner of the property to satisfactorily determine that there is                   compliance  with all conditions upon burning as noted in this subsection C1       during any burning.

2. The terms and provisions of this chapter shall not apply to any burning of                  prairie plants for purposes of habitat reclamation; provided, that those                      performing controlled prairie burning must receive the proper permits from their        fire protection district, if applicable, and notify the village police department.

3. The terms and provisions of this chapter shall not apply to the burning of brush          for purposes of domestic fireplaces or cooking or external fireplaces, or to self-          contained outdoor wood burning devices or fireplaces. 

4. Notwithstanding subsection C1c of this section, the remaining terms and                    provisions of this chapter shall not apply to the open burning of brush for                  purposes of recreational fires. 

5. The terms and provisions of this chapter shall not apply to the open burning of          brush for purposes of ceremonial fires; provided, that notice of any                          ceremonial fire has been given to the fire protection district, if applicable, serving      the area where the fire is to take place as well as notification to the village                police department. Failure to notify the applicable fire protection district and              police department and obtain permission prior to conducting a ceremonial fire            utilizing brush shall be deemed a violation of this chapter.

6. The open burning of landscape waste and/or other materials, with the          exception of brush, is prohibited in the village except for those living  within      the 60119 U.S. postal service zip code. If the state of Illinois expands its vehicle        emission testing program to include the 60119 zip code, this prohibition shall            automatically apply to the area included in the vehicle emission testing program.        The open burning of landscape waste shall be subject to the provisions of                  subsection C1 of this section. (2013 Code § 7-2-2) LANDSCAPE WASTE                  is defined as all accumulations of cut grass or shrubbery                                        cuttings, leaves, flowers, and weeds.
