Be A Good Steward: Protect & Respect Your Parks & Trails

UPDATE TO FREE Mulch Available to Residents

On Saturday, August 5 & Saturday, August 19 from 8:00am-3:00pm the Forestry Department will be on-site at the Streets Location to provide loadings assistance with a front loader into open-top vehicles or trailers for residents wanting free mulch.  Residents will be required/responsible for covering their load upon departure.

The free mulch at Streets remains open for residents to pick up mulch on their own during daylight hours at any time.


The City of Fort Collins Forestry Department is offering free mulch to the public at the Streets Department (625 Ninth Street) located on the southwest corner of Lemay Avenue and Vine Street.

The mulch will be available for distribution during daylight hours only starting on Thursday, July 13 until the mulch is gone.

Residents will be required to load their vehicles so please come prepared with a shovel, gloves and, if necessary, some type of container to hold the mulch. This offer is not available to commercial businesses.

Until the mulch pile at the Streets facility is gone, the regular mulch sites located at the Timberline Recycling Center and Gardens on Spring Creek will not be stocked.
