Burn Smart, Burn Clean
Outdoor burning has been allowed in North Saanich for many years as a way to manage excess green waste. However, there is a growing awareness about the impact of the smoke from outdoor burning on human health, particularly for children, the elderly, and people with pre-existing health conditions.
You can help by choosing alternatives to burning. If you must burn, burn smart & clean.
If you are going to burn, please reduce the smoke from fires by:
- Burning on good venting days only. View the B.C. venting index.
- Burn hot: Ensure the fire has adequate oxygen.
- Burn dry material. Do not burn leaves, green grass, construction waste or household items.
