Firewood Collection 

It has been identified during a review of issuing of permits and monitoring compliance, that Council cannot meet the requirements for collection of firewood on roadsides in line with the regulations set by Department of Environment and Water Regulation.

At its Council Meeting in October 2020, Council resolved to no longer permit the collection of firewood from any land under management authority or owned by the Shire of Bruce Rock.

As a result, the Shire no longer issues permits for the collection of wood.

The Shire would like to remind community members to please not take any wood from road verges, reserves or any other land controlled by the Shire of Bruce Rock as this activity is illegal and penalties may apply.

The Shire thanks community members for their cooperation on this matter.
