Open burning prohibited in the Village

Burning brush, leaves, trash or debris is not allowed in the Village of Essex Junction per the Municipal Code, Chapter 13, Regulation of Public Nuisance.  This ban is because of the dense population and close proximity of houses in the Village.  Dumping yard waste in the woods on Brickyard Road and the bike path is also not allowed.  The Chittenden Solid Waste District Drop Off Center on Colchester Rd. will take bags of leaves, brush and limbs for free.  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
