Free Mulch and Compost: New Hours and Locations  

Bring your own tools and containers and head over to the Waterwise Community Center!

If you are a community group such as Boy Scouts, a community garden, school, or other group and are working on a project within our Service Area, you may arrange to pick up compost on another day. Please contact us for scheduling and availability.

Self-Serve Free Mulch

Our giveaway has been moved to the north end of our main parking lot and will be available 7 days a week from 6 am - 10 pm until supplies last on a first-come, first-serve basis.  

This is a self-serve event: You will load your own containers and vehicle. Bring your own tools and containers. A pitchfork and sturdy containers are recommended.

Mulch is a mix of ground local green waste (yard waste and tree trimmings). Mulch helps conserve water by reducing evaporation, allowing water to be held in the soil for longer. It also helps build soil structure, inhibits weed growth, and much more. All mulch is donated by our friends at Green Army in Montclair. This blend of mulch contributes to improving soil more than store bought bark or dyed mulch. Mulch is typically applied as a layer on top of the soil.
