The city has unloaded tons of mulch, but December's windstorm generated the gift that keeps on giving, mulch-wise.
Monrovia is extending its free mulch giveaway every remaining Saturday this month. The mulch can be picked up at from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Feb. 11, Feb. 18, and Feb. 25.
"Recent windstorms generated lots of mulch from downed trees and limbs. Help us to keep this material out of landfills by using the mulch locally," reads a flyer for the event.
Shovels, gloves, bags and goggles are not provided so bring your own.
Editor's note: The pitchfork is the best implement for scooping up mulch and far superior to the shovel.
