Fall 2021 burn permits available Oct. 1


ROSEBURG, OR – The Roseburg Fire Department will issue fall residential burn permits from Friday, October 1, through Sunday, October 31.

The permits are issued for seven days at a cost of $75. Residential yard waste is the only material that may be burned and all materials must be burned in a debris pile. Prohibited items include trash; standing berry vines, standing grass and standing weeds; paper, wood or plastics; tires; construction material; and material from lot clearing. Burning may not be done on vacant lots or property owned by someone else.

Burn barrels are not allowed inside City limits. Anyone burning trash or burning without a permit may be subject to a fine and/or legal action.

Fires must be monitored by a competent adult and extinguished prior to nightfall. Tools to control or extinguish the fire must be on-site whenever material is burning.

Roseburg Fire officials urge property owners to be cautious and exercise due diligence while burning because debris fires can quickly get out of control, and the person responsible for the fire may be subject to fines, legal action or restitution.

If possible, residents are urged to use alternatives to burning such as composting, chipping, mulching or transporting the debris to the Douglas County Landfill. More information on these options can be found at
