Cover your Load
Uncovered loads of garden waste can spill onto the road and create a hazard for other road users. Leaves, branches and mulch from uncovered vehicles can also wash into stormwater drains and pollute waterways.

What is 'garden waste'?

Waste is not just rubbish and unwanted material, but also includes garden waste such as:

  • mulch
  • branches and lopped material
  • lawn clippings
  • tree trunks and stumps
  • leaves
  • unwanted and dead plants.
Ensure that garden waste transported by a vehicle is covered, or risk a $500 fine.
