County to host annual mulch giveaway May 20 and 21

IMG_1271Pulaski County Road and Bridge will give away free mulch Friday, May 20, 2016 and Saturday, May, 21, 2016 from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. each day, at the intersection of 32nd and Woodrow (formerly Smokey Hollow Foods facility). Every year, the county turns all debris collected throughout the county into mulch that is given back to the people of Pulaski County.

“We usually have enough mulch to distribute throughout the county. But, because we had such a mild winter, we don’t have the amount that we usually do.  That’s why we have to initially keep everyone to a two-scoop limit,” said Pulaski County Public Works Director, Barbara Richard. “Our goal is to provide as much as we can to everyone.”

The two-scoop limit means that each recipient will receive only two scoops from a front-end loader. If there is a substantial amount of mulch at the end of the drive, the Road and Bridge Department will review how best to distribute the remainder to county residents.

For more information on the mulch drive, please call Pulaski County Road and Bridge at (501) 340-6800.
