I've got waste materials that I need to dispose of. Can I burn this material, rather than sending it to a landfill?

Kansas Administrative Regulation (K.A.R.) 28-19-645 prohibits open burning, with a few exceptions outlined in K.A.R. 645-648 (PDF); this regulation can be found on page 100. Contact the KDHE District Office or Local Agency Air Program of the county where you wish to burn for more information.

If you still have questions, please contact the Compliance and Enforcement Section by calling 785-296-6422.
