Can I burn leaves or brush?

There is a burning ban on all outdoor burning in all of Metro Atlanta, including Douglas County, between May 1 and October 1. This ban is imposed by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Environmental Protection Division. The Douglas County Fire Department may also impose a total burn ban if conditions warrant (continued drought, high winds, high fire danger, etc.) During the remainder of the year,  all outdoor burning requires a permit from the Douglas County Fire Department.
