County Residents Can Pick Up FREE Mulch on April 23

Prince George’s County residents can pick up FREE mulch from the County Organics Composting Facility on Saturday, April 23, from 8 am to 1 pm or while supplies last.

Mulch for this source reduction event is derived from live holiday trees collected curbside and dropped off throughout January. A skid loader will be available to load mulch directly into pickup trucks (no commercial vehicles). Residents transporting mulch by car will need to bring their containers, shovels, or pitchforks.
