Fine fuel collection 27 November

Bush Fire Support

Fine fuel collection

Residents of Scotland Island Monday 27 November 2023 – Have your bags ready by 7am

To help reduce the risk of bushfire and ember attacks, Council is organising a fine fuel collection. Fine fuel includes leaves, twigs and bark that can easily catch fire and only these materials will be collected. Fine fuels are less than the diameter of your little finger.

Please note other vegetation will not be collected as part of the fine fuel collection.

What to do you need to do?

  1. Pick up a fine fuel bag supplied by Council (one bag ONLY per household) from Tuesday 7 November 2023 from your Rural Fire Brigade. 
  2. Clear your roof and rake up all the fine fuel around your house and tip it into the fine fuel bag. Only Council supplied bags will be collected. 
  3. Place your filled bag on the road reserve outside your property for collection leaving a 3m gap in the road reserve or fire trail to allow for emergency access.
