Is it OK to burn trash in Perkins Township?
The Ohio EPA regulates all open burning in the state of Ohio. No one should be burning trash in the township — at least not without written permission from the EPA. Such burning could be hazardous to the environment and to the heath of residents in the township. If you're burning leaves or brush in the township, you have to be at least 1,000 feet from the nearest inhabited building. The Perkins Fire department also requires anyone burning brush to contact them for a permit. This is also a good practice so the fire department is aware of the controlled burn in case they get calls from people who see the smoke. Below I attached the Ohio EPA rules on burning both in the city limits (which would apply to Sandusky residents) and outside city limits (in Perkins or any of the other surrounding townships.)
