F.C. Leaf Mulch Loading Day Slated for April 9

The City of Falls Church will be giving out free mulch on April 9 from 7 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Recycling Center at 217 Gordon Road during its Leaf Mulch Loading Day. During the event, City of Falls Church Operations staff uses heavy equipment to load open bed vehicles with the City’s high-quality leaf mulch. Participants must sign a waiver prior to loading.

The leaf mulch is the end-product of 5,000 cubic yards of leaves vacuumed from city streets in the autumn. Removing and recycling the leaves into mulch provides a far more cost-effective solution than hauling and disposing of them. For more information, visit
