Burning Off

Burning of leaf litter, rubbish or refuse on the ground or in an incinerator is not permitted within Vincent, unless prior approval has been granted by the Manager Health Services (this is extremely rare).  Furthermore, fire bans exist in the summer months and are regulated by the City's Ranger Services.

Smoky Chimneys

Smoke from chimneys can interfere with both amenity and health conditions such as asthma. If you own a wood heater, please ensure it operates properly and is maintained regularly. Ensure you only burn dry, seasoned firewood.
