NILES -- Today from 8 until 11:45 a.m., the Niles Street Department will once again be loading wood mulch into trucks and trailers free of charge for area residents.
The mulch pile is located at the Street Department garage property, 1815 Eagle St. directly behind Ring Lardner Middle School.
Two front-end loaders with operators will be used to do the loading.
Residents wishing to load the mulch into their own containers or vehicles are welcome to do so during these same hours.
The mulch, which provides a rustic and decorative appearance for gardens, planting areas and pathways, is the end result of the Street Department's very popular brush chipping program.
The City of Niles reserves the right to limit quantities.
