MAY 8 UPDATE: Free mulch (self serve) will last through this Sunday, May 13. Any mulch that is still in the parking lot will be removed and placed into city storage.
Calling all residents… give your flowerbeds a jump start on spring with a layer of FREE mulch! The City of Arlington Parks and Recreation and Public Works departments in partnership with Keep Arlington Beautiful are giving away free mulch beginning Saturday, April 21 at Richard Simpson Park, 6300 W Arkansas Lane, 76016.
“Mulch is good flower bed ground cover and can help retain moisture in the lawn and garden when used as a soil amendment,” said Lorrie Anderle, Arlington Recycling Coordinator.
The free mulch is a result of native trees that were destroyed in the recent tornadoes. Residents will have the opportunity to bag unlimited quantities of mulch for their personal use. No vehicle larger than a pickup truck or trailer will be eligible for the program, please.
The Public Works Department will provide loaders to fill pickup trucks and trailers. Volunteer workers will be on hand to assist with loading, however residents should be prepared to self-load.
