Temporary ban on outdoor burning

In response to recent dry weather and drought conditions, the Cobb County Fire Marshal’s Office has instituted a temporary ban on outdoor burning, to include the burning of yard debris.

Leaves, pine straw and other yard debris may not be burned until the ban is lifted. The ban is expected to be lifted when significant rainfall is received and notification will be sent out when burning may resume. The Fire Marshal’s Office will also stop the issuance of Large Yard Waste and Bonfire permits during this time.
