Unrestricted burning from June 1. 

Plan smart and burn smart.

Crews from City of Wanneroo Fire Services, Joondalup CFRS, Rural Fire Division members, contractors and MNC staff all participated in a successful UCL burn adjacent to Wanneroo Road in May. In near ideal conditions, Burn Controller District Officer North Costal directed a combination of line and spot ignition techniques that achieved a terrific fuel reduction.

Great advice!

Just don't tell city of Rockingham know that your bin blows away in quinns!
You need to contact City of Wanneroo for that 😉⚠️ *URGENT BIN IMPACT UPGRADE* ⚠️

We do not do this lightly.

A deepening low pressure system is going to impact the west coast tomorrow, it poses significant risk to your bin, the contents and your neighbour at number 23.

Unsecured items around the home pose an equal risk, although picking up the wet contents of your bin is far worse.
