Pinal County to Suspend Issuance of Open Burn Permits

Starting April 2nd, Pinal County Air Quality began issuing only 3-day open burning permits. All burn permits will expire by May 1st, and Pinal County will suspend the issuance of all open burning permits on April 28th.

Burn permits allow for the disposal of plant material by open burning during limited daytime hours.

Additionally, State law prohibits open burning in Area A from May 1st thru September 30th. The Pinal County portion of Area A includes Apache Junction, Queen Creek, Gold Canyon, San Tan Valley, and portions of Florence.

The annual cycle of rising temperatures will quickly dry seasonal vegetation, leading to an acute wildfire risk in the desert and upland areas of the County.

The suspension on burn permits will continue until the summer monsoons arrive and mitigate the dual risks to public safety and public health.

Additional information on the Pinal County Air Quality program can be found at www.pinalcountyaz.gov or by calling the Pinal County Air Quality Division at 520-866-6929.
