The Town of Scituate is now issuing burn permits online. Fees will be collected at the time of application by credit card, debit card, or electronic check. By requesting a burn permit you are acknowledging that you have read and understood Scituate’s burning rules and restrictions. It will be necessary to access the burn permit program between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM on days that you intend to burn and record your intent to burn.
Burning will not be permitted on “Red Flag” days when atmospheric conditions exist that create a hazard as determined by the fire department officer-in-charge and the MassDEP.
If you experience difficulty with the online burning permit process please call 781-545-8748 for assistance.
