The County reminds the public that care should always be taken when burning, regardless of weather conditions. Fire permits are required for most burning activities. They are free of charge and can be applied for online or in-person at the Lethbridge administration office (#100, 905 4 Avenue S.).
Fire permit holders may burn the following items:
Untreated wood (wood or wood products that do not contain preservatives)
These items cannot be burned at any time, even with a fire permit:
Wood or wood products that contain preservatives
Plastic (including silage plastic, grain bags, and baler twine)
Rubber (including tires)
Animal manure or cadavers
Waste material from construction sites (only untreated wood is permitted)
Containers that have held chemicals or pesticides
If you are unsure if you require a permit, visit our website or call 403-328-5525.
Should conditions change and the wildfire risk increases, Lethbridge County may impose a Fire Advisory, Restriction, or Ban at any time. Before burning, always check our website to ensure there are no restrictions in place.
