Forest Fire Danger

Backyard burning of toxic materials, garbage, construction waste, demolition waste and garden refuse is NOT permitted in the District of Sechelt. This is a smoke release bylaw regulated by the District of Sechelt Bylaw Officer, not the Sechelt Fire Department.

As an alternative, Salish Soils accepts yard waste free of charge.

For more information on how you can help protect your home from wildfire check out the Firesmart Manual at or come into the Sechelt Fire Department for your free copy.
