|Outside Burning Regulations
As fall approaches many of you will begin the task of cleaning up leaves and other yard debris. There are several options available to residents to dispose of this debris, primarily curbside yard waste pick up, and the township brush site. However, some residents may choose to burn the debris. Open burning is permitted in Saginaw Township, however it is only permitted under very specific conditions. Please DO NOT conduct outside burning until you have reviewed all of the regulations contained in the "Burning Regulations" section of this website.
