Compost and Mulch Giveaway Event--POSTPONED
- Date: April 25, 2020 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
|Due to the extended shelter in place order issued by Yolo County, the City is postponing the Compost and Mulch Giveaway event originally scheduled for April 25. We will be closely monitoring this situation to determine a future event date. Please see our website and social media for updated information.|
On April 25, 2020, the City will be hosting the 4th Annual free Compost and Mulch Giveaway event on Faraday Avenue off of 2nd Street.
The event will begin at 9 AM and will continue until 2 PM or until the compost and mulch are gone. This giveaway is for Davis residents only; proof of residency will be required. Compost and mulch will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Residents must bring their own equipment (shovels, wheelbarrows, bins/buckets, etc.) to scoop and transport the compost and mulch. Vehicles will be asked to back up directly to the compost and mulch piles. No trailers are allowed due to insufficient space.
This event will be cancelled if there is rain forecasted--please check this webpage the day before the event for confirmation.
The compost for the event is generously donated by Recology Davis and comes from the Recology Jepson Prairie Organics facility in Vacaville.
Did you know? Compost is a soil amendment made from yard trimmings and other organic materials and is used to enrich existing soil and encourage healthy plant growth. Recology’s compost is listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute for use in organic production.
The wood chip mulch will be provided by our City’s Urban Forestry Division. When pruning City trees, Urban Forestry staff use a chipping machine to create a wood chip mulch from pruned limbs. These wood chips are used in parks and greenbelts all around the City to suppress weeds, conserve water and promote healthy landscapes.
