  • Announcement from Northern Beaches Council about a fine fuel collection    Council fine fuel collection information


    Residents of Scotland Island 

    To help reduce the risk of bushfire and ember attacks, Council is organising another fine fuel collection.

    Fine fuel collection – 6 December 2021 (not on your 2021 Waste & Recycling calendar)

    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.

  • Only Council supplied fine fuel bags will be collected.

    What do you need to do?

  • 1.          A fine fuel bag supplied by Council (one bag ONLY per household) will be available on Sunday 21 November 2021 arranged via the Scotland Island Residents’ Association.
  • 2.          Clear your roof and rake up all the fine fuel around your house and tip it into the fine fuel bag.
  • 3.          Place your 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.

When is it happening?

Bag collection starts from 8am on Monday 6 December 2021. Have your bags ready from 8am otherwise they will not be collected.
