Free Leaf Mulch is Back!

FREE Leaf Mulch-May 2020

Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Utilities has rescheduled the annual leaf mulch giveaway. Postponed due to stay-at-home orders, free leaf mulch will only be available while supplies last on a first-come, first-served basis on Saturday, May 16, 23 and 30. Operators will load your vehicle from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Forum 52 Yard Waste Facility, 180 Northstar Drive in the Forum 52 Business Park off Forum Parkway in Rural Hall.

All citizens and employees must practice safe distancing. Only staff can load vehicles. To avoid close contact, citizens will not be allowed to exit vehicles to load mulch themselves.

All loads must be fully covered before leaving the site. Before departing, citizens will be directed to a safe area to exit the vehicle and secure their load with a tarp. If you do not bring a tarp or cover, your vehicle will not be loaded.

No mulch will be available before May 16. Free mulch is only for homeowners in cars and pickup trucks with or without trailers. Large vehicles over 1 ton will not be allowed to receive mulch under any circumstances. Homeowners who hire contractors to haul mulch for residential use must follow all vehicle guidelines listed above.

More information can be found at cityofws.org/1334/Leaf-Yard-Waste-Disposal or call City Link 311 or 336-727-8000.
