Super storm whips up excess mulch supply

AFTER enduring the pain of the recent destructive thunderstorms that battered the region, Brisbane Valley residents can now enjoy one of the positive quirks.

Copious amounts of mulch have been produced as a result of the clean-up effort, and Somerset Regional Council is now looking to give it away to residents.

Somerset Mayor Graeme Lehmann said all residents were invited to take advantage of the offer.

"For just over three weeks, starting on November 14, residents can take as much mulch as they can fit into a trailer, ute or small truck up to two tonnes, for free," Cr Lehmann said.

Collection sites have been set up near the rest areas off the Brisbane Valley Highway north of Fernvale, before Geoff Fisher Bridge.

The offer continues until Sunday, December 6.

Council is taking expressions of interest for commercial quantities of mulch. Write to Somerset Regional Council at mail@somerset.qld.gov.au
