Hilton Head burn ban goes into effect Nov. 10

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) -

A ban on burning yard debris will go into effect Sunday on Hilton Head Island. 

The town council approved the ban earlier this week, but Councilman Marc Grant says burning should be allowed until there is an alternative provided for people to get rid of lawn debris. 

The town is considering an ordinance to pick up debris from those who cannot haul it away or afford to pay someone else to haul it off. 

The burning ban does not apply to small outdoor recreational or cooking fires.
