The Murfreesboro Solid Waste Department is giving away free mulch starting today (March 1st). A word to the wise, when it's gone--it's gone! Last year, the free mulch was gone in a few weeks. Pick it up at 4765 Florence Road between 6:00 in the morning and 3:55 in the afternoons on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Murfreesboro Solid Waste Director Joey Smith says he has 9,000 cubic yards of double-ground mulch to give away and is inviting the public to come get it.


“Some of that is almost like dirt when it comes out,” he said. “It’s very finely ground.”

Smith suggested that it's best to come get the mulch during the daylight hours. He also said that when available, his employees will help load the mulch but they have to be able to see it first.

The double-ground mulch won’t last long though, he said. When offered last year, the supply didn’t last out the month.

Smith noted, “It’s available until we run out, and last year it lasted until around March 27.”
