Green waste site closed

Townsville Bulletin - - Inside Today -

Ray Collins THE green waste trans­fer sta­tion at Lou Lit­ster Park will be shut down over the next week. More than 430,000 cu­bic me­tres of bulk green waste has been pro­cessed at the site, re­sult­ing in some 208,000 cu­bic me­tres of mulch. Chip­per mulch is be­ing trucked to the city’s parks for use on gar­dens while the coarser tub-ground mulch will be used as land­fill cover. Townsville City Coun­cil’s Parks Ser­vices ex­ec­u­tive man­ager Ray Collins said any mulch still on site had been treated to re­duce odour and all but 4000 cu­bic me­tres would be taken away by next Satur­day.
