Burn Ban Lifted

Posted June 9th, 2017

The burn ban issued on April 10th has been repealed by the fire chief due to the favorable conditions set by the Drought Index.

This does not include burning garbage, refuse or clippings.

The City of Winter Haven operates in accordance with Florida Administrative Code and Winter Haven Code-City Ordinance for allowing the collection of such items by waste collection.

WINTER HAVEN CODE Sec. 14-9. It shall be unlawful to burn refuse or garbage, except in approved incinerators. Owners or lessees of premises desiring to incinerate their refuse on their respective premises shall be permitted to do so, subject to the incinerator and its operation meeting all federal, state and local laws and regulations and having the written approval of the city fire chief and the public works director.
