May I burn my leaves and brush pile?
If you live in the towns of Leesburg, Lovettsville, Middleburg, Purcellville, or Round Hill, the answer is no. These towns have a "no burning" provision in their municipal codes. If you live in any other town or in an unincorporated part of Loudoun County, you may burn leaves and brush, subject to certain criteria. You may not burn where trash pickup is available for these materials. In "built up" areas, such as Sterling Park, Ashburn, and Cascades, this trash service is provided, thus burning of these materials is prohibited. From February 15 through April 30, the State Forestry Department allows burning only between the hours of 4:00 pm and midnight. Between May 1 and September 30, the county imposes a total ban on open burning for air quality reasons. Due to the many regulations on this subject, the Fire Marshal's Office requires that any request for open burning be approved. The number to call is 703-777-0637.
