Open Burning Regulations
Permits for open burning (other than recreational fires) for land clearing operations, vegetative waste disposal, or agricultural purposes are available but must meet strict state and local regulations. Most open burning in the city must be done with an air curtain destructor (ACD). The first step in the process is to fill out an application for open burning from the MO Department of Natural Resources
(MO DNR) and submit it to the Fire Prevention Bureau for review. That permit application can be downloaded here
Additional information on MO DNR's open burning regulations can be found here
If you have any permitting questions, please contact the Fire Prevention Bureau at (816) 331-7969.
