While winter was putting a freeze on many of the outdoor activities of area residents, the City of Eden’s Solid Waste Division had a couple of “hot projects” steaming: mulch and compost material has been prepared for the annual Mulch Giveaway and Compost Sale which will be held Saturdays only, starting April 10 and each following Saturday while supplies last.
The City of Eden has mulch and compost available for citizens at the Public Works facility. Between the hours of 7 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., you can bring your trailer or truck to the facility at the end of West Avenue and fill it up with free mulch (for residential customers only) or with compost available for a fee. Quantities are limited. The facility will not be open on any Saturday if it rains; instead, the event will continue on the following Saturday. Compost costs are $5 for small trailers or regular pick-up trucks, $20 for large trailers, flatbeds or regular dump trucks and $35 for tandem dump trucks.
If you need more information, please call Municipal Services weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 336-627-7783 and dial 0 for the operator.
