Please note that the Town of Brighton will not issue a burning permit when Wisconsin DNR burning restrictions map shows anything but LOW or MODERATE threat of fire hazard. View the DNR burning restrictions map at: http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/forestfire/restrictions.html.
Outdoor burning of food and animal waste products, oily substances, asphalt, rubber and plastics (including tires, styrofoam containers and milk jugs) and any recyclable material is prohibited. Property owners must have prior approval from the town for controlled burns other than campfires, containerized burning and burning related to fire department training. Please call a town board member for approval. You must speak to a board member in person, leaving a message is not considered proper notification. If the burn is not approved and fire department responds to it, the property owners are responsible for any fees incurred.
