FREE Mulch Available to Residents

The Public Works Department's Landscape Division provides free mulch on an ongoing first come, first served basis to City residents. Right now, the City has a large amount of mulch available free for residents. Chipped wood trimmings from City landscape projects are deposited in an enclosure located in the parking lot median between the Thousand Oaks Library and the Goebel Senior Center at 1385 East Janss Road (see map).  If the mulch is all gone by the time you arrive, the City will keep replenishing it until our supply is exhausted. Be sure to bring your own shovels and sealable bags or containers and help yourself. 

In addition, any resident from any city can go to the Rancho Las Virgenes Composting Facility in Calabasas to pickup a free load of compost every Saturday, 8 am to 1 pm. The facility is located at 3700 Las Virgenes Rd. in Calabasas.  The compost is available for self-loading only, so bring your own shovels and sealable bags or containers. For more information, visit the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District's website.
