ALACHUA COUNTY, FL - The Waste Management Division of Alachua County Public Works, invites citizens to pick up free mulch at the Leveda Brown Environmental Park and Transfer Station (5115 NE 63rd Avenue, Gainesville, just past the Airport Industrial Park off of Waldo Road). The Environmental Park is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday, and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.

There are several sizes of screened mulch available, ranging from less than 1 inch to 3 inches. Citizens are invited to bring vehicles and shovels, but are reminded that supplies are limited.

"This material is really nice and perfect for use for mulch or a soil amendment," says Sally Palmi, Waste Alternatives Manager.
