Roadside Firewood Collection
Published on 09 October 2020
Residents can apply for a permit to collect firewood from certain Council roadsides until 30 November 2020.
Residents with a permit can collect fallen timber for firewood from all Council-managed roadsides except those with a high conservation value. Those roadsides contain important remnant vegetation and are protected. These areas are identified on the permit.
Permit conditions stipulate that there is to be no felling of standing trees - dead or alive.
The removal of firewood without a permit can result in significant fines. To apply for a permit or for more information about firewood collection, including a list of Council’s environmentally-significant roadsides, click here or give Council a call on (03) 5772 0333.
