Visit the Loudoun County Solid Waste Management Facility, also known as the Loudoun County Landfill, for free mulch, available to residents on a first-come, first-served basis year-round.
The Loudoun County Solid Waste Management Facility is located at 21101 Evergreen Mills Road, (Route 621) approximately four miles south of Leesburg (on the right if coming from Leesburg).
Over two million pounds of wood mulch is produced each year from trees, branches, stumps, and other vegetative debris through a double-grind process. Lumber, furniture, and other constructed-wood products are not used to produce the mulch.
The mulch loading area is located in the recycling drop-off center next to the pavilion that contains the used motor oil and antifreeze tanks.
The mulch weighs 0.29 tons per cubic yard (580 pounds per cubic yard) at average moisture. When wet, it will weigh more.
Residents must load their own mulch and need to bring tools, such as pitchforks, for loading.
No motorized equipment is allowed.
