Mulching Days - Coolaroo

Trailer loaded with tree branches

What can I bring to tree mulching days?

A maximum of four cubic metres of clean, freshly cut, tree branches will be accepted for mulching. You will also need to bring proof of Hume residency, such as your rates notice or drivers licence, to participate in the service.

What is not acceptable for mulching?

The following materials will not be accepted for mulching: bricks, concrete, plastic bags, dry timber, wire, grass clippings, thorny plants, roses, vines, palm trees, Yuccas, bracken, succulents or pots.

Commercial quantities of materials will not be accepted. Up to four cubic metres (four small trailer loads) can be taken to each mulching day per household. Trucks and trailers with garden maintenance or mowing advertising will not be accepted.

What other services are available for disposing of green waste?

We provide a kerbside organics bin for green waste disposal and operate two tips in Campbellfield and Sunbury that accept green waste for a fee.

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 – 3.45pm on the day to collect your mulch. Free mulch is not available on Christmas tree mulching days.
