The Rural City of Wangaratta has established two community firewood depots located at Eldorado and Glenrowan.
The depots assist the community to maintain access to a sustainable firewood supply, and reduce the need to remove timber from roadsides. Fallen timber (especially hollows) are important habitats and shelters for small animals; over time they break down and place valuable nutrients back in to the soil. The depots are closed over summer but reopen in the autumn months. Timber is for private use only - it is an offense to onsell. In 2019 the depots will open on Monday April 15.
