Residents in the Whitsundays are still able to access free mulch from Galbraith Park, Cannonvale left over from Tropical Cyclone Debbie.
Mulch is available every day between 7am and 4pm at the Galbraith Park site opposite the Whitsunday Plaza Shopping Centre.
Mulch will be available until the end of September or while stocks last.
Whitsunday Regional Council Mayor Andrew Willcox said the majority of the mulch had been either utilised by council or collected by residents.
“Most of the mulch has been put to good use but Council has been able to secure an extension to the NDRRA funding period from the State Government.
“This has enabled us to re-grind the residue and make it available as good quality mulch for local residents.
“Council is also planning to offer a final round of mulch to Proserpine residents at the Kelsey Creek landfill site in the near future,” he said.
When collecting mulch residents should be aware of the following:
• Council will have machinery in place to assist with loading• Residents are requested to cover their loads upon leaving the sites - refusal to do so may lead to free mulch being denied• Council will not be held liable for inconsistent mulch quality or any impact once collected by the resident.• Council asks for your patience while Council’s contractors load the vehicles in order.
