Thank you to our community members who put in an estimated 2316 hours of labor to deliver over 805 loads of burnable material to our chipping program, reducing the amount of dangerous fuel around our homes.

Open Burn Status

Open burning is restricted in San Mateo County. Read on to learn more.

The widgets to the left help determine, at a glance, if burning with a permit is allowed. At a minimum

  1. You must have a burn permit

  2. There must be no Spare The Air alert

  3. The Coast Section status for today must say "Burn" (not "No Burn"). You may call (800) 792-0787 for a voice recording of the current burn status.

If you do not have a permit, or you are not familiar with the process, do not proceed with open burning.
