[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Woodridge 4-20-2009 by L.L. No. 1-2009 (Ch. 49 of the 1992 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]
The Village Board of the Village of Woodridge has determined that the burning of trash and other waste products outside or in commercial or residential structures deprives neighboring residences of the enjoyment of their property and/or use of their premises, requiring them to keep their windows closed to avoid noxious odors and possible smoke or fumes from the burning substances. In addition, the use of outdoor wood-burning boilers, which may provide an economical alternative to conventional heating systems, may be a viable alternative in more rural areas but is inappropriate for use in more densely populated areas such as the Village of Woodridge. As such, the Village of Woodridge will impose reasonable limits to reduce the danger to the health, safety, comfort and general welfare of the residents and inhabitants of the Village of Woodridge.
The burning of garbage, trash and other waste products within the Village of Woodridge, whether indoors or outdoors, is hereby prohibited.
No person, firm, or corporation shall cause, allow, install or maintain the use of an outdoor wood-burning boiler within the Village of Woodridge.
Any person, firm or corporation violating any provision of this chapter shall be fined not less than $100 nor more than $500 for each offense, and a separate offense shall be deemed committed on each day during or on which a violation occurs or continues to exist.
A violation of this chapter is hereby deemed to be a nuisance, and in addition to any other relief provided herein, the Village Attorney may apply to a court of competent jurisdiction for an injunction to prohibit the continuance of any violation of this chapter. Such application for relief may include a temporary restraining order, temporary injunction, permanent injunction, and reasonable attorneys' fees.
