Where to Find Mulch

A great place to look for mulch is right in your yard. Grass, leaves, or other green and woody materials can all be made into mulch. You can also use newspapers and cardboard.

You can also look on the internet or in a telephone directory to find arborists in your area who might be amenable to providing you with chipped or shredded woody waste. This material is an ideal mulch for your yard. Some wood shops also make their organic byproducts available. Don't use sawdust or chips from pressure-treated or chemically-treated wood.

New York City residents can get free wood chips made from Christmas Trees at MulchFest leaving NYCWasteless events.
