City burn pit is open for yard waste only
The City burn pit at the sewer plant (one mile south of town on Line Street) is for yard waste only,
including trees, brush, leaves and grass clippings.
The burn pit will be left unlocked unless the use of this facility is abused by dumping of items that do not comply with the state permit, such as fencing, decking and other lumber materials. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment does monitor the City of Belle Plaine for compliance.
All bagged material must be emptied and bags placed in container next to the gate.
You can help monitor correct usage by calling 911 if you see illegal dumping in the burn pit.
