Free Mulch

Free Mulch

More than 1000 tons of tree debris and pallets is chipped into mulch and given free to Alachua County residents each year.

Alachua County citizens are allowed as much mulch as is available at the time of their request on a first-come first-serve basis. Please call, (352) 334-0172, to confirm that mulch is available before visiting the Environmental Park to pick up mulch. Citizens must load their own mulch.

Gainesville Regional Utilities offers delivery of recycled wood chips, also. See GRU Wood Chip Recycling Program.
