As more people are staying home during the COVID-19 crisis, the Township has received many complaints of illegal burning of yard waste, leaves, trash or construction materials. Given that Chester County and East Fallowfield Township is currently experiencing community-wide spread of COVID-19, there is a need to minimize any additional pressure on emergency personnel both in terms of response and unnecessary potential contact with people who may have COVID-19.
Please be advised that this type of burning is ILLEGAL regardless of whether openly burned, or in a barrel. Offenders are subject to a fine in the amount not to exceed one thousand dollars ($1,000.00), plus all court costs.
