Eurobodalla residents can pick up free mulch from the Brou and Surf Beach Waste Management Facilities during opening hours.
Eurobodalla Council has an excess of the mulch due to the large amount of green waste processed over the past few months.
Residents can collect trailer or ute loads daily between 9.30am and 11.30am and 1pm and 3pm until the current batch runs out.
Friendly tip staff can help load the mulch, however residents must cover the load.
Mulching your garden helps the soil retain moisture, control temperature – including over the cooler months, suppresses weeds and can improve appearance.
The Surf Beach Waste Management Facility is at 311 George Bass Drive, Surf Beach. The Brou facility is north of Dalmeny, off the Princes Highway on Brou Lake Road.
