Burning Plastic in Campfire?

Just wondering if anyone knows what can be burned and what cannot be burned in
I saw scouts and leaders burning plastic food wrap and packaging material in
campfire. Is this safe? Would that give out toxic fume? What about styrofoam
In many conservation areas, one has to carry the garbage out of the area if that
cannot be burned. Is there any DNR or BSA guideline on this?
Thank you in advance for your information.
