Green organics (trees, shrubs etc) dropped to Heathfield and Brinkley are chipped on-site and sold as mulch. This is a recycled material, therefore, the mulch quality is variable and may include some litter and soil. Mulch can be purchased at Heathfield Resource Recovery Centre and Brinkley Waste & Recycling Facility
