The city’s seasonal mulch giveaway program has returned. Through Nov. 3, or until supplies last, the city will have a person on site to operate the backhoe and load the material.
The giveaway will take place on Thursdays and Fridays from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm and on Saturdays from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm. We will continue to give away the mulch until Nov. 3 or until all of it is gone. The location is at the old Waste Water Treatment Plant at 80 Balfour Rd.
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 2017, ran through a chipper several times, and composted for a year. This compost should 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.
