Burning Ordinance

The Village of McCullom Lake has adopted the McHenry County Burning Ordinance, which is much more restrictive than the previous Village ordinance. There is no burning allowed within 100 feet of a habitable structure or 50 feet from a non-inhabitable structure. There is absolutely no burning of leaves, grass clippings or other yard waste. There is no burning of any construction waste, or any material other than campfire logs. Campfires are restricted to a pit not more than three feet across. An adult over 18 must be present at all fires. McHenry Township has a brush drop-off point. You may call 815-385-5605 for further information.
