Metro Atlanta burn ban resumes May 1 The Fayetteville Fire Department is reminding residents that the annual outdoor burning ban mandated by the State of Georgia will resume May 1 and continue through September 30. “During the ban, residents and businesses are prohibited from burning yard and land-clearning debris,” said Captain Ben Henning, the department’s Fire Prevention Officer. “This is in addition to the year-round, state-wide ban on burning household garbage.” Henning noted the burning bans were instituted to help the state comply with federal clean air regulations. “People who do not adhere to the ban may receive a fine,” Henning said. “Residents who see illegal burning during the ban should call 911.”
