The burning of Yard Waste; leaves, sticks, limbs, and Trash or Construction Material is NOT permitted in Caln Township. 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.
Given that Chester County and Caln Township are 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.
