Loyalty Card

Council offers a loyalty card for residents who use the Maryborough or Hervey Bay waste facilities.

Every time you dispose a load of green waste, your loyalty card will be stamped and on your eighth visit, you will be given a free cubic meter of mulch (standard grade only).

Pricing and availability

Please note that mulch is currently very wet and heavy. This will make it hard to spread on gardens.
