Green Waste & Backyard Burning

The burning of green waste is a commonly utilised by the residents of Mundaring as a means to reduce fuel load and property maintenance. Wood smoke can be especially dangerous for people with existing respiratory problems, for the very young and the elderly. Efforts should be made to ensure that any produced smoke does not become a nuisance to neighbours, including:

  • Notifying neighbours prior to conducting the burn.

  • Attending to and maintaining control of the fire at all times.

  • Not burning damp, wet or green material in avoiding the production of excessive smoke.

There are many alternatives available for the disposal of green waste and garden refuse, including:

  • Residents and ratepayers have free, unlimited entry to Shire of Mundaring's Waste Transfer Stations for disposal of waste plant material.

  • Garden waste can be chipped into mulch or composed.
