Mulch and crushed concrete
Mulch and crushed concrete products are produced from the garden and concrete waste with the aim to reduce disposal to landfill.
These products are available for purchase from the Maryborough or Hervey Bay waste facility.
Under the Queensland load restraint requirements, any load carried on or in your vehicle or trailer must be properly restrained. To view the requirements, visit the Department of Transport and Main Roads website.
As part of Council's recycling program, we have three grades of mulch available for purchase - standard, cottage and premium.
To contact the makers of the mulch visit the Q mulching website.
