Safe Outdoor Burning Guidelines

Your right to burn outdoors is NOT absolute. You must comply with state and local laws.  Click to view the Texas Outdoor Burning Rules to burn safely and to protect you, your neighbors, animals, and property.  Please remember that only wood and paper objects may be burned in an outdoor pile. Burn Barrels with screens are required for house-hold trash. Do not burn at night or during the day if the wind is over 20mph. 

NOTE:  For residents outside of the City of Combine, Kaufman County requires a burn permit.  This does no apply to residents inside the city limits.  To apply for an Outdoor Burn Permit, click on the link below:
