Free mulch for Burdekin
HUGE pil es of green waste dumped in the wake of Cyclone Yasi are now being offered t o Burdekin residents in the form of free mulch.
The Burdekin Shire Council is kick-starting the free mulch program this weekend by providing a loader to fill residents’ utes and trailers with mulch stockpiled at the old Ayr racecourse.
The loader will operate at the old racecourse from 7am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.
After t his weekend, residents will have to load it themselves.
Free mulch was also available from the Home Hill transfer station in Bojack Rd during normal opening hours, but resid e nt s would need t o make their own loading arrangements.
