Fire Safety and Fireworks

The burning of any vegetation or domestic waste is prohibited within the Holroyd City Council area (Protection of the Environment Operations (Clean Air) Regulation 2010). This waste should be either composted or alternately removed to a waste facility licensed to accept it.

Smoke from wood heaters is a major cause of air pollution. In fact, during winter, wood heaters can produce up to seven times as much particle pollution as cars.

To hold a fireworks display on Council controlled land you must first obtain Council permission before making application to WorkCover for the necessary permit.
