City offers free mulch

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - Summer is the time when flower beds can use a little sprucing up and the City's Public Service Department is offering free leaf mulch for pick-up every Friday until supplies run out.

The public can pick up the free mulch in their own trucks or trailers every Friday between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon at the treatment plant located at 1915 Grubb Ferry Road. Follow the signs to the pick-up site.

Appointments are also available for those who wish to pick-up at least three tandem truck loads for other days during the week.  To schedule a large load appointment call Public Services  at 704-638-5268.
The Street Division does curbside pick-up of yard waste throughout the year, with October to March being the time the majority of leaves are collected. The leaves are then stacked at the Grants Creek Treatment Plant and nature does the rest to turn then into dark brown decorative mulch or compost that can be tilled into soil. 

The mulch give-away program is a great way to support the environment by recycling yard debris and promote green initiatives for the City.
