City of Hendersonville’s 2018 Mulch Giveaway Program

An outdoor building filled with mulch.

The City of Hendersonville’s seasonal mulch giveaway program is set to begin the first weekend in March. Beginning Thursday, March 1st, the city will have a person on site to operate the backhoe and load the material.

The program will operate on Thursdays and Fridays from 3:30 pm to 7:00 pm and on Saturdays from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm. They will continue to give away the mulch until May 13th or until all of it is gone. The location is at the old Waste Water Treatment Plant, 80 Balfour Road.

In addition to the mulch, the city will be offering composted leaves as a separate material. These are leaves that were collected during the fall of 2016 and 2017, ran through a chipper several times, and composted for a year. This compost would be an excellent addition to your vegetable and flower gardens.

For questions about this project, please call the Public Works Department at (828) 697-3084.
