Effective today, Cape Coral rescinds the temporary burn ban issued on October 6
Effective today, November 23, the City of Cape Coral is rescinding the temporary burn ban that was issued on October 6 with the intent to limit fire hazards within the City due to the excessive debris caused by Hurricane Ian.
Though the burn ban has been rescinded, residents are urged to continue to use caution with recreation and cooking fires and are reminded that the burning of yard waste and debris is NOT permitted.
Per Chapter 8 in the City Code of Ordinance, recreational fires must be 25’ from any structure, have an extinguishment source, and the fire must be kept to a maximum of 3’ in diameter and 2’ in height.
Recreational fires are not to be used for vegetation or rubbish disposal. Waste Pro yard waste collection services have resumed and debris collectors continue to operate throughout the City to remove debris from Hurricane Ian. Vegetative waste and rubbish should be placed curbside for collection.
