This tool will guide you through a series of questions about a specific burn in order to determine whether that burn is allowed under Wisconsin state air and waste management regulations. State regulations are the minimum open burning requirements and local ordinances may also apply.

If burning is an option under state air and waste management regulations, you may need to obtain a state burn permit for wildfire protection before burning. Look for the flame icon flame for assistance with state burn permits. In incorporated cities and villages, burn permits are required at the discretion of local government.
Answer each question with the response that best fits your situation. If you are interested in burning multiple materials, you may have to complete the survey more than once.
Note: The responses you choose in this tool are completely anonymous. No personally identifiable information is collected. We are collecting the responses to help improve this tool and the information we provide on the DNR website.
