I need to know does the law in Plano (I live in the east area) say anything about burning branches, grass, sticks and some trashes in a 55 gallon metal barrel in my backyard?

Thanks in advance!

You can go online and look at city codes, but just about every city doesn't allow burn barrels within the city limits.

No, you cannot burn yard waste, not even in East Plano. Not even in a 55 gallon metal barrel/drum.

Is a barrel "open burning?"

What about a typical backyard fire pit?
