Green (Garden) waste drop off and mulching service
If you have excess green (garden) waste which will not fit in your Green lidded bin, you can take advantage of Council's free green waste drop off service, which is held regularly through spring and summer at our Mortdale Depot.

In addition to accepting green waste for disposal, residents of Georges River Council area are also able to collect mulch or wood chips, free of charge, from this service when they drop off their green waste.

Please note: This service is not available during Council's Christmas shut down period, Public Holidays, Chemical Collection events, or at Council's discretion.
