RUSTBURG, Va. (WFXR) – This time of year, mulch can be a hot commodity. It serves several purposes by holding in moisture and regulating temperatures. It also keeps weeds out.
A truck full of mulch can cost around $30 and most yards need more than one yard.
Courtesy of the efforts of Campbell County Public Works crews, citizens may come collect all the mulch they would like at the Livestock Road Transfer Site at 361 Livestock Road in Rustburg.
“The mulch is produced from grinding yard waste that is brought to our facilities. Through processing and recycling it, we are able to offer it to our residents, which helps citizens sustain their ornamental landscaping in a cost-efficient manner.”Clif Tweedy, Director of Public Works
The mulch-loading area is located at the Livestock Road transfer site, located off Route 29, near the Livestock Market.
The chipped brush mulch is available, at no cost to residents of Campbell County, on a first-come, first-served basis.
Residents must load their own mulch, and will need to bring their own tools.
