Tree loppings, garden prunings and lawn clippings can be brought to the City of Wanneroo’s Green Waste Recycling Facility, located at 70 Motivation Drive in Wangara.
The material is shredded and recycled into mulch, which is then available for sale by the trailer load. The mulch is also used on Council parks and reserves.
The City has a mountain of mulch for sale at the Greens Recycling Facility at a reduced cost of $28 for a 6x4 trailer (approximately one cubic metre). Bring your own trailer and take a load of mulch home for your garden this weekend!
Mulch can be applied as a top dressing in the garden to reduce water loss through evaporation, to suppress weeds, increase aesthetic value and to prevent soil erosion. Mulch also insulates plant roots from extreme temperatures and adds organic matter to the soil, which acts like a sponge to hold water. We can all help to reduce water consumption by mulching our gardens.
The Greens Recycling Facility has a mountain of mulch to give away to City of Wanneroo and City of Joondalup ratepayers. Simply bring in your 2013/14 rates notice (1 load per notice) along with your 6x4 trailer or ute to receive your FREE cubic metre of black mulched greenwaste (not woodchips).
No commercial loads.
Available from 1 March while stocks last.
8am - 4.45pm weekends and public holidays ONLY.
