The City of Fort Collins “Great Mulch Giveaway” was a huge success. By huge, we mean the two enormous mulch mountains at the City's Crushing Operations on Hoffman Mill Road now adorn yards and gardens all over Fort Collins. The mulch was created from the broken tree branches during the October 2011 snow and wind storms.
Still need mulch? Don't worry. City Forestry also offers free mulch year-round at two locations: City's Recycling Drop-Off Site (near the corner of Prospect and Riverside in the Rivendell School parking lot) and The Gardens on Spring Creek at 2145 Centre Avenue. Bring your shovel; both locations are self-service and available 24/7. For more information, contact Parks or Forestry at 970-221-6660 or visit fcgov.com/forestry.
