Burning refuse and waste site fires

Surrey Fire and Rescue Service receive many enquiries each year relating to neighbours burning household and garden waste on their property. Unfortunately, this falls outside the legislation Fire and Rescue Services are governed and given authority by.

The government website, Garden bonfires: the rules, gives advice on the disposal of household and garden rubbish.

Please contact your borough or district council Environmental Health officer if you need to discuss an issue with a neighbour's bonfire.
