Fire Ready requirements With the declared fire danger period approaching, the RMB would like to remind Mt Buller property lessees, of the responsibility to ensure properties are fire ready. Site clean-up weekend: 28 & 29 November 2020 A clean-up weekend arranged by the RMB, to assist lessees to prepare properties for the fire danger period. Green waste collection Over the clean-up weekend, any trimmed grass, leaves and foliage from property sites can be left by the curbside for later collection by RMB staff. Only green waste left on the curb during the weekend (Nov 28-29) will be collected. Please do not leave green waste after this weekend as it will not be collected and detracts from Village amenity. Please note that there is no hard rubbish collection. For further information on hard waste please click here. Tree pruning RMB can facilitate appointments with qualified local arborists to assist with tree pruning for a fee of $320 per hour (ex GST). Bookings are essential and can be in blocks of 30 mins, 1 hour, or more.
A minimum of 8 appointments are needed for this service to be viable. To book, please contact Ali Kirkwood, Environmental Services Officer, via email firstname.lastname@example.org, before Wednesday 25 November.
