For the second time this spring, the Niles Street Department will be loading wood mulch into trucks and trailers free of charge on Saturday, April 22, from 8 to 11:45 a.m. The mulch pile is located at the Street Department garage property, 1815 Eagle St. directly behind Ring Lardner Middle School. The service is available to all Niles residents.
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 and weed barrier for gardens, planting areas and pathways, is the end product of the Street Department's very popular brush chipping program.
The mulch is available to the public throughout the year, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Residents are normally required to load containers themselves.
The City of Niles reserves the right to limit quantities.
