LEBANON COUNTY, Pa — County Commissioners in Lebanon have issued a county-wide burn ban. The ban is in effect from 12:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 27, 2016, and prohibits outdoor burning. “Outdoor burning” is defined as the ignition and subsequent burning of a combustible material (garbage, leaves, grass, twigs, litter, paper, vegetative matter involved with land clearing or any sort of debris) out of doors, either in a burn barrel, or any similar device, or on the ground is banned. The use of propane stoves, charcoal briquette grills, or the use of tobacco in any form is not covered under the open burning ban. Campfires are allowed in fire rings that confine and contain the campfire in state, federal or Department of Environmental Protection licensed campgrounds only.”
