In order for citizens to conduct an open burning of brush on their property, they must first obtain a Burning Permit. These are available at the Chaplin Town Hall and also below under the Forms section on this page.
Any questions regarding the permit you can contact the Burning Official, Jason Chilly, at (860) 377-2310.
The Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP) and your local municipality limit open burning for public health and safety reasons. Open burning is defined as the burning of any matter in such a manner that the products of combustion resulting from the burning are emitted directly into the ambient air without passing through a stack or flue. Open burning pollutes the air and can make it difficult for people with respiratory problems to breathe, particularly for those in densely populated areas. Open burning can create nuisance odors and smoke that may adversely affect your neighbors. Loss of control in the midst of open burning can result in forest fire and destruction of property. When conducting any type of burning, the utmost caution must be exercised to prevent injury to yourself or family members, and to prevent damage to your home or any neighboring properties.
