Open Burning Permits

Open Burning Season begins January 15, 2022 and ends April 30, 2022.

There is no cost for burn permits during the Annual open burning season.

You must have a permit to conduct open burning.

We have transitioned to a new platform for online burning permits. You must first register as a user to apply online.

Once you have submitted your application and it has been approved, it will be emailed to you if an email address has been provided. You can also log back into your account to view the Permit.

Once you have submitted your application, the burning permit will be located under Fire: click on record number, record information, attachments and then click on the permit file to download and print.

For residents without internet access, in-person assistance is available in the Law Department on the 4th floor of City Hall (15 Summer Street in Taunton).

For more information, please call 508-821-1036 during normal business hours (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday 8 am to 4 pm, Tuesday 8 am to 7 pm and Friday 8 am-noon).

Apply for an Open Burn Permit online.

Open Burn Permits cannot be obtained at Fire Stations.
