Cinnaminson Offers Free Mulch

By grinding in-house, Cinnaminson has (almost) an unlimited supply to give away.

From now until it’s gone, Cinnaminson is offering up mulch to residents who want to beautify their gardens this spring.

And if you bring your own truck to haul the goods in, it’s free. If you need delivery, officials will deliver it for $40 per load; that’s about half the price you would normally pay, said Fred Turek, township engineer.

There are two products to choose from—leaf mulch and double-ground wood chips, which is typically known as mulch. All of it is ground in-house from leaves and brush collected during the previous season.

The township started to grind products down to mulch itself to help keep costs down. The town used to work with a contractor who would charge for grinding and to haul away. Turek said in the past, mulch had been made available to residents but it ran out quickly.

“Now, there’s no chance of us running out,” Turek said.

Each time the township grinds brush and leaves, the mulch is getting better, Turek said.

The mulch is restocked in the parking lot behind the and the in town. Residents can stop by at any time to pick up mulch themselves however they must fill out a request form to have it delivered.

You can visit the Public Works building at 1601 Union Landing Road to fill out a request form. Or, you can fill it out online and pay for the delivery service at the municipal building.

“We’re trying to limit our expenses to the taxpayers,” Turek said. “That’s committee’s goal. I think it’s a good thing for the community, especially in these troubled times.”
