    Castle Rock Township does not issue burning permits - look at the "Permits" page on this website under "Burning Permits" for more information.

    Burning and burying of garbage causes pollution and poses health threats. This is why it is illegal for Dakota County residents, including farmers, to burn or bury solid wastes—such as paper, plastic, cardboard, aerosols and other garbage. See Castle Rock Township Ordinance No. 2013-01 Section 7.19.G Waste Materials. Residents may either contract with a waste hauler or take their garbage to a local disposal facility. Read more
