Free Mulch Saturday, Nov. 14

Free Mulch Event Scheduled by City of Memphis Public Works

In celebration of America Recycles Day, the City of Memphis Public Works will provide free mulch on Saturday, November 14th beginning at dawn at Bert Ferguson Park, located at 8505 Trinity and Rodney Baber Park at 2215 James Road on a load-your-own, while-it-last, basis for Memphis residents only.

The landscape quality mulch will be available beginning at dawn and residents must provide their own loading equipment and containers. Commercial businesses and non Memphis residents are not eligible.

The free mulch is derived from trees and other wood wastes collected at Memphis homes by City Solid Waste Management crews, then processed into mulch by the City’s Recycling and Compost Department. This will mark the 33nd and 34rd free mulch event provided by the City, since yard waste recycling began in 1995.

For additional information about recycling call 576-6851 ext.1 or visit the City's website.
