Fireworks Now Permitted on Private Properties Within the City of Castlegar

Effective at noon (Pacific Standard Time) on Thursday June 18th 2020, the use of fireworks will again be permitted on private properties only within the City of Castlegar. This is in conjunction with the amendments that the BC Wildfire Service is making commencing at the same time. For more information on the bulletin from the BC Wildfire Services, click here.

Please note, the City of Castlegar bylaws do not allow for open burning of yard waste, garbage and construction or demolition material. We have been busy dealing with burning complaints involving yard clean-up waste and the burning of prohibited materials over the last number of months. We ask that you please utilise the yard waste disposal facility at the Castlegar Recreation Complex or take the material for proper disposal to the landfill located in Ootischenia. Only campfires are permitted burning clean campfire wood on private property until otherwise notified by the Office of the City of Castlegar Fire Chief. For information on campfires, click here.
