The Green Waste Processing Facility is open for the receipt of clean, green waste from residents, commercial operators and council verge collections.
The recently refurbished facility diverts 100% of green waste from landfill, to produce up to 30,000 tonnes of mulch and high quality soil conditioners per year.
Mulch is a beneficial soil conditioner as it increases moisture retention, suppresses weed growth and enriches Western Australia’s sandy soils.
