Recreational Fire Guidelines

Recreational fires include the following:

  • Campfires
  • Barbecues
  • Cookouts

These recreational fires must be no larger than 2 feet high by 3 feet across and cannot last longer than three hours. Clean, seasoned firewood or the equivalent is the only combustible material permitted for these types of fires.

As a reminder, the burning of leaves, garbage or other waste products is prohibited in Jackson Township.

Residents who choose to use a propane grill for their outdoor activities should follow these simple safety tips:

  • Check the supply hose from the LP tank to the grill for leaks
  • Clean excessive grease from the cooking surface
  • Move the grill a safe distance away from your home when in use
  • Remember to shut off the LP tank valve when not in use
