Burn Permits

A burn permit can be obtained by calling the following numbers:

For inside the City of Sylvester, call 229-776-8511

For machined piles, call 229-777-2114

Those intending to burn hand-piled vegetative debris are no longer required to notify GFC. Because the number one cause of wildfire is escaped debris burning, the agency is focusing on specific burning safety measures landowners must use to avoid unlawful burning charges.

For agriculture, silviculture and land-clearing burns, a permit IS still required. For complete details on the new law, go to  https://gatrees.org/georgia-burn-notification-law-changing
