Green waste and burning amnesty
To assist residents to prepare for the fire danger period, Council is offering free disposal of green waste at all Resource Recovery Centres across the Shire from 30 September until 15 October 2017. All residents can burn off up to 15 October, as long as burn piles are no larger than 1 metre x 1 metre and material burnt is no thicker than 3 inches in diameter. Burning of any woodpiles or vegetative matter larger than this requires a permit from Council. Please only burn dry materials and ensure that smoke from fire is not a nuisance to your neighbours. For more information please contact Council on (03) 5772 0333.
