Free Green Mulch Trial - Dysart Waste Management Facility

Isaac Regional Council advises that residents will be able to access free green waste mulch for their gardens from the Dysart Waste Management Facility on:

The last Sunday of each month starting from Sunday April 29
between 1pm to 5pm

Residents will be entitled to two cubic metres of free mulch on the last Sunday of each month,
until 30 June 2018 or until the stockpiles are exhausted.

The trial will assist in reducing the amount of waste going to landfill through the recycling of green waste as quality mulch. The use of mulch as a conservation tool to reduce evaporation and to hamper underlying weed growth is widely accepted.

For safety purposes, the mulch will need to be loaded by a Council-operated loader and not manually by hand, so customers will require a suitable utility or trailer for collection. Any children or animals accompanying a customer collecting mulch must remain within the vehicle at all times.

It is also a requirement that the load be fully secured and covered by a tarpaulin or similar before departing the site. Customers will have to show they have a suitable cover before loading commences.

Customers wishing to collect free mulch will be required to accept the full terms and conditions of the green mulch trial at the Waste Management Facility Weighbridge prior to the commencement of the loading process.

If you require further information please contact Council’s Customer Service Centre available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 1300 ISAACS (1300 472 227).
