The Shire of Broome Waste Management Facility has available garden mulch, free of charge. The mulch is available for collection during the facility opening hours (Mon to Sat and Public Holidays 7:30am – 3:30pm, Sundays 8:00 – 2:00pm). The Shire are able to provide assistance with loading the mulch from 8:00am – 11:00am on Saturdays only. Outside of these hours the mulch is available for self load only.

Why Mulch?

By mulching the incoming green waste we prolong the life of our landfill, reduce methane emissions, and provide mulch back to the community. There are numerous benefits from using mulch in gardens and agriculture including:

  • Reduce water requirements
  • Reduce soil moisture evaporation
  • Improved weed suppression
  • Increase organic matter in the soil
  • Improved soil structure
  • Reduced soil erosion
  • Reduced leaching and run off
  • Soil carbon enhancement.
