New Melle Fire Will No Longer Issue Burn Permits

Per updated burning regulations from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, New Melle Fire WILL NO LONGER ISSUE BURN PERMITS. Previously the burn season was from Sept 15th thru April 14th. With the new regulations, there are no designated dates for open burning (burn season is open all year) on property owned by the resident.

Open burning of household refuse is limited to residential premises with four dwellings or less. Household waste is waste produced by routine household activities such as paper and garbage from daily activities. This does not include home remodeling waste from home businesses, durable goods such as appliances or furniture, tires or other non-routine household waste.
