Burning of waste on campfires and bonfires

If you comply with the requirements in this regulatory position statement (RPS) you can burn waste without an environmental permit on campfires at Scout and Guide centres and Guy Fawkes’ night bonfires.



We recognise that certain traditional cultural events need to be upheld so at the request of the Association of Scout and Guide Centres the Environment Agency has expanded its original Guy Fawkes’ night bonfire regulatory position to include their activities.
