Mulch Giveaway Program to Begin on March 28th

An outdoor building filled with mulch.

The City of Hendersonville has scheduled its seasonal mulch giveaway program to begin on Thursday, March 28, 2024.

Mulch will be available for pick up on Thursdays and Fridays from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM and on Saturdays from 8:00 AM to 12:00 noon. This schedule will continue until May 30th or until the material is gone. 

The mulch will be distributed at the old Wastewater Treatment Plant located at 80 Balfour Road in Hendersonville. The Public Works Department will have a staff member on-site to operate the backhoe and load the material. 

In addition to mulch, the city will be offering composted leaves as a separate material. These leaves were collected during the fall of 2022, ran through a grinder, and composted for a year. This compost should be an excellent addition to your vegetable and flower gardens.  

For the first time this year, the initial two weeks of the giveaway will be exclusively for City residents. Please have your ID ready for verification upon arrival. 

Free mulch is intended for non-commercial, residential use. Commercial vehicles are not allowed, this includes dump trucks and any other marked commercial trucks or trailers. Contractors will not be provided with either type of material for reselling or commercial use.

More information on these programs is available at or by contacting the Public Works Department at (828) 697-3084.
