VANDALIA — Effective Wednesday, July 1, Vandalia residents may take brush, limbs and trees that are smaller than 12 inches in diameter to BR Mulch, Inc., 620 Ginghamsburg Road, Tipp City, OH, for disposal free of charge.
- From March 1 through November 30, BR Mulch is open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- From the second Saturday of March to the last Saturday of July, BR Mulch is open Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- From August through November, BR Mulch is open on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- From the first Sunday in April through the last Sunday in June, BR Mulch is open on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This contract also allows City crews to dispose of leaves picked up during the annual leaf collection season at BR Mulch.
Vandalia residents must show proof of residency in order to dispose of yard waste at BR Mulch.
The agreement with BR Mulch should assist Vandalia residents looking for disposal options now that the Montgomery County North Incinerator has closed. The Vandalia Public Works Garage is also open on the second Saturday of each month from March through October for the disposal of brush, limbs and larger construction debris.
The agreement will streamline the leaf collection process for City crews, who previously transported all collected leaves to a holding area for the winter, until they can be ground into mulch. City crews then transported the mulch to end users as requested.
As a result of this new agreement, 2015 will be the last year that the City of Vandalia will offer residents free mulch. The City currently has a limited supply of free mulch, and will offer the mulch free of charge to Vandalia residents until supplies run out.Reach the Development & Engineering Service Department at 898-3750 or the Public Works Department at 415-2349.
