Report a bonfire or smoke problem

There are no laws against garden bonfires, but please consider composting or recycling as alternatives to burning waste. 

Only burn dry waste (not household rubbish), don't burn rubber or plastic and don't use fuel to help the fire.

If you are bothered by smoke from an outdoor fire please speak to your neighbour. If this fails, you can complain to us. A bonfire would have to be a persistent problem, interfering with your wellbeing, comfort or enjoyment of your property before we can take legal action.
