Moreton Bay Regional Council free mulch to residents

Posted on October 8, 2016 at 5:38 3 Comments

Has anyone collected this free mulch and how is it made .When they make mulch they can add some very toxic substances that you would not want but because the levels in final product are low can still meet standards.
