Free mulch

Mulch can be collected (when available) from the Garden Waste Centre on a Sunday between 9.00am to 3.00pm.

Please note the mulch has not been composted and therefore is coarse and may contain noxious weeds. You must provide your own trailer and tools to load the mulch. For more information, please contact us on 9840 9333.
