Permit to burn – residential areas
A reminder to community members living in residential areas that they require a permit to burn.
Burning off your household or garden waste in the open or using a backyard incinerator is banned, year round.
The permit must be issued before the applicant can burn. An on-the-spot fine will be issued to people who light a fire without first obtaining a permit.
This ban prevents fires and protects public health, especially people with breathing difficulties like asthma.
Applicants should allow at least three days for the permit to be issued. To access a permit to burn application visit the link below or collect a hard copy from the Shire Office, 48 Nolan Street, Maryborough.
Please allow at least three days for your permit to be processed. Permits are free. If your property is greater than one hectare in size, you do not require a permit.
