Can I burn my yard waste?
Burning yard waste is now illegal if you live in a city with more than 5,000 people. Breathing smoke from any fire can worsen serious lung conditions. Other opportunities such as reducing the quantity of waste, shredding, composting, and chipping are options. Transfer stations and the City of Bellingham Clean Green site will also take your yard waste.
