Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Utilities has announced the annual leaf mulch giveaway for Forsyth County homeowners. Free leaf mulch will only be available on a first-come, first-served basis starting Good Friday, March 29, and continue while supplies last on Saturday, March 30, April 6 and 13. Operators will load your vehicle from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Forum 52 Yard Waste Facility, 180 Northstar Dr. in Rural Hall.

Operators will be available to help load your vehicle. If you do not bring a tarp to fully cover your mulch before leaving the site, your vehicle will not be loaded. Before departing, citizens will be directed to a safe area to exit the vehicle and secure their load.

No mulch will be available before March 29. Free mulch is only for Forsyth County homeowners in cars and pickup trucks with or without trailers. Large vehicles over one ton will not be allowed to receive mulch under any circumstances.
