Is leaf burning allowed in residential areas?

Residential burning of clean yard waste, grass clippings, weeds, tree trimmings, and other material is not allowed in Salt Lake County or in Draper City.

Draper City is unique in that it straddles the border between Salt Lake and Utah counties, with parts of our fair town falling into each county’s jurisdiction. Since more of Draper’s acreage is in Salt Lake County than Utah County, we defer to Salt Lake County’s guidelines for burn and other prohibitions.
