Free mulch weekend at Yass Transfer Station May 20-21

Yass Valley Council (YVC) has over 4,000 cubic meters of freshly mulched green waste at the Yass Transfer Station to give away free this weekend.

Normally mulch is sold to the public at a discounted rate of $6 per trailer load, which largely covers mulching and loading costs. Due to the large stockpile, however, council will hold a free mulch weekend on Saturday May 20 and Sunday May 21.

The transfer station on Faulder Avenue will be open both days, from 8am to 4pm. Under this proposal, the mulch will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis and is to be strictly for private use only. A limit of 3 cubic meters per resident will apply with residents to supply their own trailer.
