The St. Mary’s County Department of Public Works & Transportation says it has a supply of free mulch remaining at the St. Andrew’s Landfill while supplies last. All St. Mary’s County residents are welcome to pick up the mulch (at no charge) at the landfill.

Mulch will be available between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday (the St. Andrew’s Landfill is closed on Sundays) until all supplies have been depleted.

Citizens are responsible for the loading and transportation of the mulch and are asked to bring a shovel, pitchfork or similar hand tool to load the mulch. Also, a tarp should be used to cover the load prior to transporting to minimize material from blowing off the vehicle.

If assistance is required, special needs exist or additional information is requested, please contact the Department of Public Works & Transportation at (301) 863-8400.  Additional Recycling/Solid Waste Program information is available on the web at http://www.co.saint-marys.md.us/dpw/.
