Free mulch available

Special to Citrus Daily

The Citrus County Division of Solid Waste Management wants to remind everyone that the county has an abundance of Coarse Mulch available for residents, free of charge.

You can obtain it anytime the Central Landfill is open for business, in amounts from the size of a tote, to a tractor-trailer load.

County personnel will load your open-top truck or trailer from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Tuesday through Friday or from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, also free of charge. If you need a large amount (large dump truck to tractor trailer) call ahead to arrange loading.
Coarse Mulch is excellent for retaining moisture in flower beds and around shrubs and other plantings, as well as for reducing erosion on slopes and dirt driveways. If you have any questions about the county's mulch, or any other program of the Citrus County Division of Solid Waste Management, call (353) 527-7670, or on the web at
