Burning Garden Refuse And Rubbish

The following rules apply during the Restricted and Prohibited Burning Times:

No fire may be lit to destroy garden refuse or rubbish, other than in an incinerator, on a day when the fire danger forecast issued by the Bureau of Meteorology is "Very High" or "Extreme" for that locality.

The following procedures apply to the burning of garden refuse or rubbish: Fires lit in an incinerator are permitted at any time of the day provided that

  1. The incinerator is properly constructed and will not permit the escape of sparks or burning material.
  2. The incinerator is located not less than two metres from any building or fence.
  3. The area around the incinerator is cleared of all inflammable material for at least two metres.

PLEASE NOTE: AN OPEN DRUM IS NOT AN INCINERATOR!

Fires Lit On The Ground

  1. Fires may be lit only between 6pm and 11pm each day and must be extinguished by midnight of the same day.
  2. Fires may only be lit on the ground provided the surrounding area is cleared of all flammable material to at least five metres around the material to be burnt.
  3. The person who lit the fire or the person left in attendance shall completely extinguish the fire with water or earth before leaving the fire.

Common Sense Precautions

Do not attempt to light any fire to destroy garden refuse or rubbish if conditions are windy. Have a garden hose connected to a tap and water running while burning is carried out. Do not leave the fire unattended at any time. The bigger the fire, the greater the risk of sparks causing a fire to escape.
