Effective midnight September 30, 2013 the Clallam County burn ban is lifted. Urban growth areas, including Port Angeles, Sequim, Carlsborg, Joyce, Clallam Bay, and Sekiu, are restricted from outdoor burning through Washington State law. A outdoor burning permit is required in order to burn in Clallam County Fire District 2.
You are now able to obtain a Residential Burn Permit on-line. A Residential Burn Permit is used for the burning of natural yard debris, in one 4 foot x 4 foot X 3 foot pile, in areas where burning is allowed. Burning is prohibited within the city limits of the City of Port Angeles and the Port Angeles Urban Growth Areas (UGAs). The UGAs are from the west city limits to Reddick Road, and from the eastern city limits to Koenig Chevrolet and Wal-Mart, and the Bonneville Power Lines on the South. Maps of the UGA areas can be found by following the link at the right: Clallam County Burn Restriction Information. Burning barrels are prohibited as is the burning of any processed items such as lumber, trash, roofing, tires, etc.
