Organic Recycling Tips

Please place organic waste loosely in your bin. To prevent grass clippings from sticking to the bin you can line your bin with newspaper. For larger tree branches Council operates free drop off days. Large tree branches are mulched and the mulch produced may be left for Council to dispose of or taken home for use in your garden. Refer to Council's website for the next mulchign day near you.
