OPEN BURNING IN DELANSON

It it prohibited at all times to burn garbage, trash, leaves, yard waste, or yard debris in Delanson. Burning household trash releases dangerous compounds including arsenic, carbon monoxide, benzene, styrene, formaldehyde, lead, hydrogen cyanide and dioxin, among others.  Burn barrels or free standing fires are also completely prohibited in the Village.

All open burning is prohibited in the Village from March 16th to May 31st.

  • The emissions of an open fire may not interfere with the reasonable enjoyment or quality of life or property or create a smoke or odor nuisance to a neighboring property.
  • Open fires must be a safe distance from any structure, building, property line or trees, brush or shrubs.
  • Open fires may be fueled only by paper, paper products (such as cardboard), unadulterated wood, clean lumber and charcoal. The burning of chemically treated wood such as pressure-treated lumber and plywood or painted wood is is a serious health hazard and is strictly prohibited.

Open burning is the single greatest cause of wildfires in New York. Dry conditions and the close proximity of homes in the Village makes open burning extremely dangerous.  Smoke from open fires can be overbearing and unhealthy for neighbors, especially those with lung disorders.  Please be smart and considerate of your neighbors and the law.

If you do open burn, all fires must be attended to by an adult and fully extinguished before you leave the area.

To report an illegal open fire or a nuisance fire, you can call the DEC hotline at 1-844-332-3267 or the local fire department.  The fire department has the authority to extinguish or order extinguished any open fire being conducted in violation of any provision of the our local Open Burn Law.

Drones!

There is evidence of an increase in the unauthorized use of small, inexpensive Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) by individuals, organizations, and companies throughout the country.drone-1142182_1280

As a result, in order to protect people, property and privacy rights on the ground, and to prevent collisions between aircraft or other objects, regulations and minimum standards have been enacted by the State and Federal Governments.  FAA compliance does not mean that a drone operator is not committing a trespass or invading someone’s privacy.

Below is a list of informational resources relevant to flying Unmanned Aircraft in your local area
