Residents living in the Arcadia/Berrilee/Fiddletown area are able to remove excess garden waste by creating a pile and burning it. In areas prone to damage by bushfire this is a huge benefit to everyone and it is one of the ways to help prepare your property to withstand a bushfire. Before you conduct a pile burn you need to get an EPA permit from Hornsby council, and during the fire season (generally October to March) an RFS permit is also needed. An application for a permit from both the council and the RFS will result in a visit from the relevant authority to inspect the pile.
Where can I get more information?
