Wollongong City Council’s free collections in January have been successful so far with residents delivering approximately 100 tonnes of green waste to collection points in Helensburgh, Corrimal, Mt Kembla and Whytes Gully.
Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery said now is a good time to clear your property and remove fallen leaves, twigs and debris.
“You can also help make your property safe by composting smaller leaves and branches,” he said.
Tips on preparing your home for bush fire are available on the RFS website.
Information on composting garden and kitchen organics at your place is on our website, see Sustainable Living.
