Garden bonfires: the rules
There are no laws against having a bonfire, but there are laws for the nuisance they can cause.
Burning domestic waste
You can’t get rid of household waste if it will cause pollution or harm people’s health. This includes burning it.
You can get rid of household or garden waste by composting or recycling it. Contact your local council to find out how to dispose of garden waste and about recycling in your area.
Danger to traffic by smoke
You could be fined if you light a fire and you allow the smoke to drift across the road and become a danger to traffic.
Complain about a neighbour’s bonfire
Your council can issue an ‘abatement notice’ if a neighbour’s bonfire is causing a nuisance. A bonfire must happen frequently to be considered a nuisance.
Your neighbour can be fined up to £5,000 if they don’t stick to the notice.
Extracted from the GOV.UK website
To minimise the likelihood of causing a smoke nuisance you should:
consult neighbours and give them time to shut windows and bring washing inside
avoid bonfires during windy or wet conditions, when smoke will be more likely to affect your neighbours
make sure that any garden waste to be burnt is dry and not green
never burn plastics, painted materials, plywood and chipboard as they can give off poisonous chemicals - some of which can cause cancer
never use petrol, methylated spirits or similar to light the fire
never leave the fire unattended
Bonfires in this day and age should be seen as a last resort as there are plenty of alternatives.
Why not 'do your bit' for the environment and help reduce air pollution in Isleham by disposing of your garden waste in a more environmentally friendly manner?
You should consider:
Shredding and using it as a garden mulch or 'green' compost which can be dug straight into the garden
Use our fortnightly green waste kerbside collection and your waste will be composted
Make your own compost from your garden waste to improve your soil and save money.
Or, take your waste to the recycling centre at Witchford or arrange for a special bulky waste collection.
