IT'S DRIER THAN YOU THINK - GRASS FIRE AWARENESS

With the snow melting and spring arriving, yard cleanup is starting.  Although the ground may seem wet, it's drier than you may think it is.  Dead grass and surface vegetation from last fall is dry on top and can contribute to controlled burns becoming fast moving, and destructive wildfires quickley.

Loyalist Township has a TOTAL BURN BAN from April 1st to May 15th.  All other times of year, open air burning bylaw 2015-050 is in effect.


Loyalist Township offers a brush pick up and yard waste pick up in April (brush) and May (yard waste).
