Designated Leaf Burning Days?
The Effingham community has wrestled with the issue of the burning of yard waste for some time. Efforts to create a turnkey solution that includes curb side pickup of regular trash, yard waste, and recyclables is under examination and experimentation. HSHS St. Anthony’s Hospital has a big information push going on right now to mitigate as much burning and air pollution as possible. The Effingham Water Authority just banned burning on Sundays. Many submit it is time for the City of Effingham to take a step in that direction. It seems a modified burning ban can be a happy medium.
If the city were to identify days residents can burn and days residents cannot burn, what would make sense?
Here’s a suggestion: Burning is banned on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays.
Burning is allowed on Fridays, Saturdays, and Mondays. The rationale here is that people who work, either during the week or on the weekend, would have an opportunity to burn.
