Equipment Problems Cut Off Supply of Free Wood Mulch

July 8, 2010

The Streets Division is experiencing problems with its wood processing equipment. Those problems have forced the Division to stop supplying free wood mulch until at least the Week of July 19th.

"We know that many of our residents look forward to getting free mulch from the City for home landscaping projects," Dreckmann said. "Unfortunately, our brush shredder is having mechanical problems that require us to shut it down for a minimum of two weeks. That means we will not be able to supply free wood mulch to the public."

"We do not know at this time how long repairs will take," Dreckmann said. "If our equipment is down for an extended period of time we will look at renting a machine so we can keep up with our curbside collection."

Residents will be notified when brush is available on the Streets Division web site www.cityofmadison.com/streets.
