I'm just curious why so many ppl burn everything in their yard in city limits ? We have trash pick up and limb pickup once a week . Is there not any laws about burning crap in your yard in city limits . I understand ppl who live in the country "burn away " but why do so many folks burn in there yards . All my neighbors burn and it stinks and burns everyones eyes . The smell will get in the house just like someone is smoking a cigarette in your house . I just don't get it and it seems a bit dangerous . JMO

I agree! We finally have nice weather and can open the windows to let the house air out, and it's filled with the smell of people burning all that stuff. It's ridiculous!

As for the leaves.. they're leaves.. leave them be, let them blow away, or cut them up with the mower... hell, even bag them and put them in your trash can or something.

I like the smell of burning leaves.
I don't want to fill the land fill with more plastic bags. I like to burn my leaves and smoke my cigar in the fall. It's my property.
Piss off!!!!

The world doesn't revolve around you.
You bitch about others yards if they don't please you. If they don't mow as often as you want ect.
Mind your own damn biz. Fix your yard don't worry about others!!!

I don't care what ppl do to their own yards , but when it affects my air quality then it's my business . Many ppl in town burn not only leaves but trash too . Its just awful when your in your own house and you have to smell your neighbors trash burning . Come on ppl you pay for your trash pick up "use it " !!!! There should be a city ordinance against burning in town .

You're a homeowner? Congrats! So are many other people that have to smell the crap you burn. You're concerned about the amount of things in the landfill? Please give examples of other things you do to reduce the amount of things taken to the landfill from your house.

I will say that leaves aren't as bad as some of the other crap that people burn, but it is still rather annoying.

Get over it. Close your windows for a few minutes.
