Green waste should NOT be disposed of in household wheelie bins.
Disposal by ute or car trailer load (no greater than single axle and single wheel) is free at all transfer stations and the Benaraby landfill.
Green waste must not contain any foreign matter, including building materials or general waste.
If you have your recycling, general waste and green waste separated in your vehicle, this will save you time and money.
Remember cover your load. On the spot fines can apply.
Green waste deposited at waste facilities is converted into mulch which is available for free for residents (if self-loaded).
As at 12.06.2017 mulch availability is:
Gladstone Transfer Station - New mulch is isolated for testing prior to release. About 5000m3 of previous supply remains available for collection.
Agnes Water Transfer Station - Mulch available. All loads must be completely covered and vehicles and trailers are not to be overloaded. A 'no tarp, no load' policy will apply.
Benaraby Landfill - Mulch available. All loads must be completlely covered and vehicles and trailers are not to be overloaded. A 'no tarp, no load' policy will apply.
Council will update this page and inform the public when new mulch is available for collection at Gladstone Transfer Station and Benaraby Landfill.
