This project aims to identify low-emission alternatives to open burning of residential vegetative waste and discourage burning of yard waste among residents outside the urban containment boundaries of Metro Vancouver because of the health and air quality implications of burning. The fire bylaws in most municipalities focus on fire safety more than air quality and limit burning to wet seasons which adversely affect air quality.
