Free Green Organics Drop Off Days – Autumn 2020

To assist with fire prevention in the district, Adelaide Hills Council organises a number of free green organic drop off days throughout the year.

Council recognises that a number of residents are actively practising social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic by staying home. Knowing that working in the garden is a popular activity during this time, we have arranged for a number of additional free green organics drop off days to assist with this.

All drop off days are conducted from 9am – 4pm. Proof of residency required.
