Bonfires are an historic way of disposing of rubbish.

However, they can be a cause of pollution so are not the most environmentally friendly way of getting rid of rubbish.

Bonfires can also be very irritating to neighbours by preventing them from enjoying their property and land.

There are a number of alternatives to having a bonfire which Great Yarmouth Council would recommend.

This guidance aims to provide the reader with information on your rights as a person having a bonfire, what to do if you are affected by bonfires and other methods of dealing with garden waste
