The regular burn period runs March, April and May, with a provisional burn period in the fall.  For the 2019/20 open burn period, the Town will allow continuous burning starting November 29th, 2019 through May 31st, 2020.  The Town has temporarily suspended the East/West burn restriction.  Within the allowed burn periods permits are valid for the  calendar year.  With a valid burn permit citizens can burn dry vegetative waste only.  Even with a valid permit, citizens must contact Butte County Air Quality Management District to ensure that it is a permissible burn day; if burning is suspended due to fire hazard or air quality reasons it will be reflected in the recording.  See the application for specific requirements. Permits can be purchased with a credit card using the link above, or at Paradise Fire Station 81 at 767 Birch St, paying with cash or check only.  The cost for a residential burn permit is $25.00.
