The spring firewood collection season has now closed. No roadside collection of firewood is currently permitted.
Community firewood access
From time to time our operations team clears trees that are suitable for firewood, as a result the Indigo Shire has established a Community Woodlot. The Community Woodlot has been operating since 2007 in partnership with the Beechworth Correctional Centre to provide a source of low-cost firewood for Indigo Shire pensioners and concession cardholders.
Due to prisoner team time constraints it is difficult to facilitate distribution over the whole of the Shire area and direct delivery is not guaranteed. However recipients can arrange for collection from those depots where the wood is prepared. If you are part of a community organisation that would like to assist in helping with the distribution of wood within your local community, please contact us.
