Mulch Delivery

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.
