Recreation fires ARE NOT permitted any time of the year. However twice a year the city of Powell River allows a Backyard Burn Month…and with the correct instructions – you can burn this month.
City councillor Maggie Hathaway says the first step is to get a permit, then follow the guidelines you get with your permit.
Hathaway reminds residents these burns are used mainly for getting rid of backyard waste…leaves, branches and tree trimming waste. If you have any questions you can call the Powell River Fire Rescue at 485 4431 for more information
