About Mulch Delivery
Takoma Park’s Public Works Department has leaf mulch available for pick up and delivery. The mulch is made by grinding leaves collected each fall in the City’s vacuum leaf collection program. Mulch can be used as a soil amendment or a top dressing around plants and trees.
Mulch is available for purchase through Public Works.
The mulch pile is accessible for self-loading at no cost every day of the week.
Loading of trucks is done for a fee (see below) and must be scheduled in advance by calling 301-891-7633. Due to Covid loading is not available until further notice
How to Schedule & Pay for Mulch Delivery
Public Works delivers mulch* to residents and customers outside of Takoma Park (30-mile maximum) for the prices listed at the bottom of this page. The delivery program starts in March each year and continues until supplies are depleted.
Deliveries are scheduled on Fridays between 8:30 AM and 3:30 PM. Call 301-891-7633 to schedule a delivery. Payment can be made by check or money order, mailed to the Public works office or hand-delivered and received by Thursday afternoon at Public Works. Payment by credit card is also available, but includes a processing fee.
