City to give mulch for free during October


Mulch will be available to residents while supplies last

Due to an excess supply of mulch, Fayetteville residents may receive free mulch during the month of October during normal operating hours at the City’s Compost Facility located at 1708 S. Armstrong Ave. in southeast Fayetteville.   

The mulch will be given away for free until supplies are exhausted and may be acquired in  truck-bed/trailer amounts or residents can bring their own containers or bags for loading.  The facility hours are 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and the site will also be open on Saturday, October 6th and Saturday, October 13th, from 8:00 a.m. until noon. 

The mulch is made from ground-up trees and is great for weed suppression and moisture retention around plants.  The mulch is made from trees collected through the City’s Yardwaste Program and trees dropped off at the Composting site.
