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.
Book a free kerbside service to chip and mulch your pruned branches. For more information go to the Chipping and Mulching page.
Purchase a compost bin or worm farm from Council at subsidised rates and have it delivered to your door at no extra cost.
For more information visit our Compost Bins and Worm Farms page.
