“Buy One, Get One Free” Spring Promotion at City’s Yard Waste Center

News posted Mar. 07, 2017 - 3:00 pm

The City of Raleigh Solid Waste Services Department creates mulch from leaves, grass clippings, shrubbery trimmings, tree limbs, and other yard waste that is collected at the curb each week. The Yard Waste Center staff follows strict guidelines in producing high quality mulch for sale. The mulch is created in an all-natural facility using a month-long process to eliminate weed seeds, pesticides, or chemicals that can be found in yard waste.

Using locally made mulch for landscaping is a green choice, and reduces fuel required in shipping. In addition, instead of using chemicals and energy to bag mulch for commercial sale, customers do the work of packaging the mulch themselves. Customers are advised to consider the environmental costs of using garden products that are not quickly renewable, such as peat moss or cypress mulch.

The following is important information about the “Buy One, Get One Free” promotion:

  • Coupon is not required for this promotion;
  • The “Buy One, Get One Free” promotion applies to mulch and leaf mulch only while supplies last;
  • Customers must pick up purchased and free mulch the same day;
