The Muswellbrook Shire Council and Singleton Council are continuing the fight to reduce harmful emissions from smoky chimneys in the area.
A smoky chimney can be the result of a number of things and usually simple actions such as opening the damper when using a wood heater and regular cleaning of chimney flues will reduce smoke emissions.
Both Councils are offering cash rebates for residents engaging professional chimney cleaning services.
Council staff members are available on request to inspect, monitor and educate home owners with an ongoing smoky chimney issue.
