Open Burning Information
Open burning of leaves, sticks, branches and refuse is prohibited in Middletown Township.  The only exception to the open burning ban allowed without a PA DEP permit is a fire set solely for recreational or ceremonial purposes under the PA State Fire Code. 
A recreational fire is an outdoor open fire that is no larger than 3 feet in diameter and no more than 2 feet in height, built for pleasure, cooking, warmth, or religious or ceremonial purposes.  The use of outdoor fireplaces, portable outdoor fireplaces, barbeque grills and barbeque pits is also permitted under the current regulations.
