Free mulch available in Ponca City

Ponca City Now - January 14, 2014 1:19 pm

The mulch will be ready tomorrow.

At the beginning of this month Ponca City waste management provided an avenue for residents to recycle their Christmas trees.

David Horinek, solid waste superintendent said the trees provide quite a few yards of mulch.

“Maybe, 8 to 10 yards, cubic yards,” Horinek said.

The mulch is free to the public, and is first come, first served.

They will keep the mulch outside the gates until it’s gone.

Horinek said you have to bring your own container if you want some of the mulch.

“A type of container that holds anything like yard waste," Horinek said. "You could use a heavy plastic bag, you could bring buckets, I have seen people with plastic tubs out there. But definitley bring a shovel to load your item with.”

He has even seen a man load it directly into the bed of his truck.

The area is open 24/7.
