Alternative methods of fuel reduction

To minimise smoke nuisance and air pollution concerns, landowners/occupiers are encouraged to explore alternative avenues for fuel reduction (other than burning) where possible, these include:

  • Mulching smaller material for placement on garden beds or placing small amounts in with compost to aerate the compost mixture.
  • Chipping branches for placement on gardens beds.

  • Removal of green waste and tree branches to one of Council's Waste Transfer Station sites.
