Mulch Mulch

Council encourages all residents to recycle their green waste by taking clean garden waste to any of its landfills and transfer stations for recycling into a high-quality mulch product.

As part of Council's recycling program, we have three grades of mulch available for purchase - garden, cottage and premium. Garden mulch / soil blend is also available.

To contact the makers of the mulch visit the Q mulching website.
