While the County has a restrictive ordinance on open burning for certain materials, covenants in Sandia Heights prohibit burning. They generally state: “No trash shall be burned on the premises except in approved incinerators located indoors or within service yard. No garbage shall be burned. Garbage shall be placed in covered containers, said containers to be concealed from public view by an attractive enclosure. No barbecue or other outdoor cooking facility shall be located thereon nearer than ten feet from either side of lot line unless made a part of the residence.” Check your covenants.
