Urban Backyard Burning of Vegetation Policy
The Urban Backyard Burning of Vegetation Policy was adopted by Council on the 24 March 2021.
The objectives of this policy are to:
- Regulate when, where and how burning of vegetation from property maintenance can occur in a way that protects air quality and amenity;
- Promote alternatives for disposal of garden vegetation through re-use, composting, mulching, using Council’s kerbside organic waste service or transporting to the Resource Recovery Centre; and
- Ensure compliance with the Protection of the Environment Operations (Clean Air) Regulation 2010.
