Green waste contamination means mulch can't be released
CONTAMINATION in green waste stockpiles at Gladstone Transfer Station and Benaraby Landfill has prevented the release of mulch to the general public.
Despite a strict inspection regime and new signage that has been implemented, some users continue to drop rubbish and other material in the green waste stockpile, causing the contamination.
Biosecurity Queensland and the council are working together to assess and mitigate any potential risk to allow the release of mulch.
