Need to finish your garden on a budget?

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Need to finish your garden on a budget? The City of Lafayette has you covered.

Later this month, the Lafayette Street Department will be giving out free mulch. Several times a year, the department grinds up its excess brush and hands it out to the community. 

The department says it's a win-win. You get the mulch, and they get rid of their waste.

"We double-grind it, which makes it a little bit better mulch," said Mike Roush. "The problem is, we get a lot of it collected and it's hard to get rid of."

Anyone in the county claim it. Roush says there will be people on-site to help load. All you have to bring is something to take it away with.

Mulch will be given out two weekends in a row on Aug. 24 - 25, and then again on Labor Day weekend, Aug. 31 - Sept. 1. It will be distributed at the street department facility on Sycamore and Walnut streets, right off of Wabash Avenue.
