Burn Area CLOSED

The City of Runaway Bay provides the residents a burn area for branches under 4 inches circumference, grass clippings and leaves ONLY.  No building materials, treated wood, plastic, tires, other solid waste items or hazardous material allowed. There are no exceptions. We do not allow for contractors use or clearing of lots and we ask the following of our citizens:


1. Please call City Hall to confirm availability before loading at 940-575-4745, key is not available to be checked out after 2:45 p.m. Monday – Thursday and not past 1:45 p.m. on Friday. There is a 2-hour time limit.

2. Name, address, phone number, and driver’s license (showing a resident of Runaway Bay)

3. EACH load must be approved by City Hall before unloading. We ask that you unload as far back as possible as this will keep the closing of the burn area to a minimum necessary.


Together we can keep our city a safe beautiful place to stay and play.
