Mulch Giveaway

  • Date: 04/13/2019 7:00 am - 12:00 pm

Spring is the perfect time to mulch your gardens, so  come pick up some high-quality mulch at the annual Mulch Giveaway Event!

What is mulch? Mulch is a material (like decaying leaves, bark, or compost) applied to the surface of soil. Place 2-3 inches of mulch around your plants, along walkways, and on top of other bare areas to reduce evaporation, prevent weeds, and improve soil fertility.

The City will be hosting two giveaways on the following dates: April 13 and May 11. This event is free to Arcadia residents. Mulch will be available from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on a first come, first served basis while supplies last. Mulch will be free-standing and located at the Arcadia Public Library's west parking lot. Enter via Duarte Rd. and prepare to queue in your vehicle. 

Residents will need to bring the following items to receive free mulch:

  • A shovel and sturdy containers/boxes to hold mulch. No plastic bags!
  • Arcadia water bill

Please note that mulch is limited to 2 cubic yards (a truck bed) per residence. Questions? Contact Public Works Services at (626) 254-2700.
