Burning Permits


We'd like to remind everyone that Village of Plover residents must obtain a burning permit anytime they wish to burn brush outside of their regular fire pit. Permits are free and issued on a daily basis. Those wishing to have a campfire (within their fire ring) for cooking, warming or leisurely purposes do not need to obtain a permit. We highly encourage all residents to recycle leaves, grass and garden debris by composting or taking excess yard materials, pine needles and cones to the compost site at the Village of Plover Wastewater Treatment Facility, since these materials cannot be burned. If you need to get rid of larger yard debris such as tree branches and brush, a burn permit can be obtained.

Permits (for burning within Village limits) can be picked up at the Fire Department Office between the hours of 7:30am to 4:30pm, Monday through Friday. 

Residents who live outside the Village of Plover can obtain an annual burning permit through our office, online here or at a Department of Natural Resources (DNR) station. 

*Burn permits are NOT issued for the Village of Whiting per Village of Whiting ordinance.

Please visit the 'BURN PERMIT' section on our main department page for more details including allowed/prohibited materials, burning hours, locations, pile sizes and other regulations.  

Any questions please call the Fire Department Office at (715) 345-5310.

Be Safe!
