Firewood collection areas close
Friday 4 October, 2013
Parks Victoria advises that designated firewood collection areas between Mildura and Swan Hill were closed today, ahead of the official end of the Spring domestic firewood collection season.
North West District Manager Dale Antonysen said, “Parks Victoria has closed collection areas near Mildura and Robinvale because the planned supply of firewood has been depleted.”
Firewood may only be collected from open designated firewood collection areas, and limits apply to how much can be collected. The Spring domestic firewood collection season closes on 30 November.
Parks Victoria rangers and DEPI officers will continue surveillance and patrols of the closed areas and other forests, parks and reserves to ensure public safety and that people are complying with regulations.
“Parks Victoria and DEPI are taking a zero tolerance approach to people who break the law on firewood collection. Typical on the spot fines are around $577. Offences that go to court may be liable for fines up to $7218, one year imprisonment or both,” he said.
