Yard Waste Burning Calendar

The dates highlighted in yellow are designated burn days for yard waste.

Due to the Statewide Red Flag issued by the South Carolina Forestry Commission burning will be cancelled on Saturday, March 11th. 

The South Carolina Forestry Commission issued a statewide Red Flag Fire Alert, effective at 7 a.m. Friday. Weather forecasts for most of the state over the next three days include stronger-than-normal wind gusts and very low relative humidity, all of which combine with dry fuels on the ground to create the potential for outdoor fires escaping easily and spreading rapidly.

"Today was one of the busiest fire days we’ve seen in a while - [more than 50 active fires statewide] - and it's because the conditions that led us to issue a Red Flag alert last weekend haven’t changed much," said Darryl Jones, SC Forestry Commission Fire Chief.

The Town will allow burning of yard waste on the following Saturday's if conditions permit:
  • March 18th
  • March 25th
  • April 1st
  • April 8th

A permit is required to conduct Outdoor Burning of Yard Waste. Permits can be obtained at any fire station on Hilton Head Island.

All rules of existing permits will apply.

  • The permit holder must register their burn on the make-up date.
  • To register the burn call 843-682-5125. You must call before you light the fire to determine if projected weather conditions will allow burning.
