The City of La Porte asks that you separate your brush (tree limbs, grass clippings, etc) from your household trash for heavy trash day. The free mulch we offer is the result of grinding and composting the brush that citizens put on the curb. Residents should bring a pickup truck or trailer to be loaded, or their own bags and shovels for self-service.

Although we cannot deliver mulch, we have expanded availability to residents by placing mulch at the seven satelite locations. 

Free Mulch is now available for pickup Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm and on Saturdays from 12:00pm to 4:00pm at Public Works, 2963 N. 23rd Street and we can assist in loading of the mulch.  Citizens can also pickup from one of our satelite locations listed below:

9300 Block of Carlow, at Spenwick Park
8610 Bandridge, near oil recycler
10211 Hillridge, near oil recycler
10330 North P Street east of Northwest Park
