Massachusetts allows residents to burn brush between January 15 and May 1, depending on weather conditions and air quality. You must obtain permission from the Hopkinton Fire Department if you plan to burn brush. 

The permits are free of charge, but availability depends on information received from DEP and DCR each morning. We have created an online burning system that allows for monitoring of the availability and location of our daily permits.
