Organic Recycling Tips

Greenwaste service is currently available for Toowoomba City Service Centre residents only. A non-mandatory greenwaste service may be available for all residents under the new waste collection contract to commence on 1st July 2013. Place twigs on the bottom of your garden waste bin to prevent grass clippings from sticking. Avoid contaminating your greenwaste by placing items such as rocks or engine parts inside green waste bin. Please don't put green waste in plastic bags - place it directly in your bin.
