Yard Waste Center to Give Away Free Mulch in May

The first week of May is International Compost Awareness Week. During this time, countless people will work to share the benefits of recycling organics and the importance of returning organic matter and compost back to our soils. The Raleigh Yard Waste Center is recognizing the occasion by giving away free organic mulch!

Visitors who come to the Raleigh Yard Waste Center May 6 - 11 will receive free Leaf Mulch and Organic Mulch upon request. Colored mulch, wood mulch, and organic compost are not included. No appointment is necessary; visitors can receive a maximum load of 45 cubic yards of available inventory per visit. The promotion is open to everyone (residents and businesses). Visitors are responsible for transporting the mulch product after receipt.
