Dead and fallen timber are an important habitat for our native flora and fauna. This means that firewood collection for domestic use is only permitted on medium conservation roadsides throughout the municipality.
A Roadside Firewood Collection permit is required to collect firewood on Council’s roadsides. These are available from our Customer Service Team and cost $11 per cubic meter. Staff are able to help you determine which roadsides are suitable or alternatively you can use the map below.
- Firewood collection is NOT permitted on any roads managed by VicRoads
- Firewood collection is only allowed during the following periods – Autumn (1 March to 30 June) and Spring (1 September to 30 November)
- During Autumn and Spring some areas or State Forest are designated firewood collection areas. There are rules but not fees.
Further information can be found at the Forest Management Victoria Website [here]
Collection is only permitted from roads that have a medium conservation rating (yellow) or no conservation rating (no colour).
