What can I bring to tree mulching days?

Clean, freshly cut, tree branches will be accepted for mulching.

A maximum of four cubic metres of accepted material applies, per household, per mulching day.

You will need to bring proof of Hume residency, such as your rates notice or drivers licence, to participate in the service.

What is not accepted for mulching?

The following materials will not be accepted for mulching:

  • branches with fruit
  • dry timber
  • vines
  • grass clippings
  • thorny plants
  • roses
  • palm trees
  • yuccas
  • bracken
  • succulents

Material containing bricks, concrete, wire, plastic bags and/or pots also won't be accepted.

Commercial quantities of material are not allowed. Up to four cubic metres (four small trailer loads) can be taken to each mulching day, per household.

What other services are available for disposing of green waste?

We provide a kerbside organics bin for green waste disposal and operate two Resource Recovery Centres in Campbellfield and Sunbury that accept green waste for a fee (or for free using a tip pass).

Does Council have mulch available to residents?

Free mulch will be available if requested when you drop off your branches. You will be asked to return between 2.45pm and 3.45pm on the day to collect your mulch.

Free mulch is not available on Christmas tree mulching days.
