Do you have a pile to burn?
Council has a No Burn Policy(PDF, 143KB) for our municipality.
We only consider applications to burn piles of vegetation on properties over 1 acre that carry out rural activities.
Approval is subject to a Ranger inspection.
Our Rangers will look at the material to be burnt and the impact a burn may have on the local air quality.
Pile burning of dry and dead vegetation is not the best method of disposal.
We encourage re-use, recycling, composting, or disposal at the Minnamurra Waste & Recycling Facility.
Piles must be constructed in keeping with the NSW Rural Fire Service's standards for pile burning.
They must not contain any prohibited material.
