Wood Smoke

​Wood smoke is created from burning firewood and other materials; it contains a mix of chemicals and particles which are hazardous to human health when breathed in. Fireplaces and wood stoves are a major source of air pollution and can be a nuisance to other residents.

Some ways to reduce smoke pollution include:

  • keep firewood dry and in a well-ventilated area
  • never burn green, wet or treated wood
  • have the flue checked and cleaned by a professional before winter begins.

For further information please refer to the Shire's Smoke - Information Sheet

Additional information is also available from Department of Environment – Wood Smoke.
