Wood Mulch Will Be Available Friday July 30th

Thursday, July 29, 2010 - 7:04am

The Streets Division is again able to supply free wood mulch for residents.

"We have fixed the equipment problems that prevented us from supply wood mulch to area parks for free pick up," Madison recycling coordinator George Dreckmann said. "We will begin to restock the parks this Friday."

"We anticipate that the mulch we get to the parks on Friday will not last as long as usual due to pent up demand for the material," Dreckmann said. "We will continue to restock the parks next week and keep them supplied for the rest of the summer."

The Street Division has free wood mulch available at four drop off locations. You can pick up the free mulch at:
East Side
Sycamore Park (Across the street from our facility at 4602 Sycamore Av.)
Warner Park (In the softball parking lot just off N. Sherman Av.)
West Side
Garner Park (On Rosa Rd. just off Mineral Point Rd.)
Elver Park (In the parking lot just off McKenna Blvd.)
You will need to bring a shovel and containers to load and haul the material.
The Street Division tries to keep these sites stocked with wood mulch. However, we cannot guarantee that mulch will be available at all times. If there is no mulch available, you can check another site or try back on another date.
It is possible to have large amounts of wood mulch loaded into your truck at our processing center at 121 E. Olin Av. The facility is open M-F from 7:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. Please call 266-4911 prior to coming to the site.
