After a couple of weeks of grinding, chopping and shredding, the large pile of yard debris at the City’s Yard Waste Transfer site has been reduced to fresh mulch that is now ready for pickup.
Spring and fall are busy times for yard work and if you’re looking for some free natural mulch, you’re welcome to load your vehicle to your heart’s content at the City’s Yard Waste facility, at Plum Creek Park, every day of the week during daylight hours.
Saturday, August 29th (between the hours of 9:15 and 11:45) is the last date during 2015 where the City will have an equipment operator working on site to load mulch into vehicles for residents that have purchased a prepaid mulch loading ticket.
The prepaid loading ticket can be purchased at the City Service Complex at 930 Overholt Road between 8 am and 5 pm.
There is no charge for Kent residents that load their own mulch by hand.
If you’re planning to drop off yard debris, keep in mind that the City accepts brush, grass, firewood, leaves, weeds and other yard waste but not lumber, wood pallets, construction debris, trash, logs, stumps, full trees or railroad ties.
This is a service provided to Kent residents so please no commercial contractors.
