Open Burning Ban

Michigan Public Act 451 of 1994, Section 324 and the Waterford Township Code of Ordinances, Section 7-29 explicitly prohibit the open burning of yard waste, leaves, grass, brush, branches, wood, construction materials, building materials, garbage, trash, waste material or any other material.

The only burning allowed is that of seasoned firewood for a small recreational campfire. A Campfire Permit must be obtained from the Fire Department in advance.
