Waldo allows for some burning but burning barrels are no longer allowed within the Village. Chapter 146 of the Waldo CODE thoroughly outlines the opportunities and restrictions of burning . Burning Permits are purchased at the Village Hall from the clerk. The cost is $10.00 for a one year permit. The following is an excerpt from the CODE that addresses the most commonly asked questions regarding burning in Waldo.§ 146-10.7 Burning of leaves, brush, clean dry wood and other vegetative debris.

  1. Open burning of leaves and other such vegetative debris is allowed, with a permit, only on Wednesdays and Saturdays, starting at 6:00 p.m. and extinguished no later than 10:00 p.m. unless other provisions are set by the Village Board.
