BND seeks comments on proposed leaf burning rules in Swansea

Do you have an opinion on Swansea possibly changing the village’s leaf-burning rules?

Under one option under consideration, the village would ban burning yard waste unless you get a permit. Under the second option, the village would set certain times for burning yard waste as it now does but stop issuing permits for burning waste throughout the year.

BND reporter Mike Koziatek would like to hear from you. Send him your comments to or on Twitter @MikeKoziatekBND.
