Fire­wood ban in parks

Campaspe News - - NEWS | REAL ESTATE -

PARKS Vic­to­ria has said there will be no fire­wood col­lec­tion ar­eas in River Red Gum parks they man­age this spring in or­der to sus­tain­ably man­age fu­ture fire­wood sup­ply.

The spring fire­wood col­lec­tion sea­son for 2018 started across Vic­to­ria on Septem­ber 1 and closes on Novem­ber 30.

The River Red Gum parks that will not have fire­wood col­lec­tion ar­eas are Mildura, Robin­vale and Barmah. In 2017 fire­wood col­lec­tion ar­eas at Co­bram-Yar­ra­wonga and Shep­par­ton were per­ma­nently closed be­cause the sup­ply of fire­wood has been exhausted.

Do­mes­tic fire­wood on pub­lic land is a lim­ited re­source that needs to be care­fully man­aged. Fu­ture col­lec­tion from Parks Vic­to­ria man­aged land will be sub­ject to ac­cess and sup­ply.

Al­ter­na­tive sources of fire­wood in­clude pub­lic fire­wood col­lec­tion ar­eas across Vic­to­ria and com­mer­cial sup­pli­ers. For in­for­ma­tion visit ffm.vic.gov.au/fire­wood
