Wood Heater reminder

With cooler weather approaching, Council has reminded residents:
  • Give your wood heater and flue an annual clean to help reduce smoke and the risk of chimney fires. A chimney sweep service can carry this out for you.
  • Keep wood dry by storing it undercover in a shed, garage or even under a tarp.
  • Only burn good dry seasoned hardwood sourced from a reputable supplier. Freshly cut wood needs to be stored for at least eight to twelve months. Unseasoned wood has lots of moisture, which causes a fire to smoke.
For information about wood heaters and reducing wood smoke visit or phone Council on 02 4868 0888.
