Firewood Collection Permit

There are rules and regulations surrounding the roadside collection of firewood.

Council generally manages roadside collection while Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) is responsible for designated fire collection areas within State Forest.

Collection of firewood from State Forests is only allowed in designated areas during the spring or autumn collection season.
