Did you know you can turn your garden organics into mulch and compost?
Before using your garden organics bin, have you considered using Council’s free Chipping and Mulching Service or perhaps composting your garden organics? Not only will this free up space in your green lid garden organics bin but will give you great mulch and fertiliser to use on your own garden.
