Wangara Greens Recycling Facility

The Wangara Greens Recycling Facility accepts clean greens from the public and creates mulch for resale. 100% of the garden organics are recovered, with no residual waste going to landfill.

Greenwaste

Access to the site is free with a valid 'Greenwaste Tipping Voucher'. 

  • Four Greenwaste Tipping Vouchers are included with your annual rates notice. From 2021/2022 these vouchers have changed to a smarter and more efficient digital process, and will be scanned and recorded upon use via a QR code.
    While there is no need to tear out individual vouchers anymore, please continue to present your vouchers for scanning either in print or through your mobile device.
  • Tenants can contact their landlord or property manager to obtain their vouchers.
  • Each voucher allows the disposal of a standard 6x4 trailer-load of clean greens at no charge.

If you have any further queries about the vouchers, please see our FAQ page.

Purchase of mulch (shredded green waste)

Mulching your garden lowers evaporation and water requirements, aids water dispersal and can help to reduce weeds.

  • Two free mulch vouchers are included with your annual rates notice. From 2021/2022 these vouchers have changed to a smarter and more efficient digital process, and will be scanned and recorded upon use via a QR code.
    While there is no need to tear out individual vouchers anymore, please continue to present your vouchers for scanning either in print or through your mobile device.
  • You can purchase mulch without a valid mulch voucher - $32.50 per cubic metre.

If you have further queries about the vouchers, please see our FAQ page.

Note: all trailer loads must be tarped when travelling.

Note - Commercial contractors and residents

Commercial organisations accessing the Wangara Greens Recycling Facility to dispose of green waste using residents tipping vouchers will no longer be accepted, unless:

They attend the site with a letter from the resident advising the staff at Wangara Greens Recycling Centre that they are disposing of the green waste on behalf of the resident. The letter must clearly detail:

  • The residents name and address 
  • It must have the residents Rates Assessment Number (this can be found on the rates notice) and 
  • It must be signed by the resident.

Unless the letter features all of the above, the Contractor will need to pay the relevant gate fee or be turned away.
