Hickory – Just in time for spring, the City of Hickory will soon begin its sales of mulch. Single ground mulch will be available beginning Friday, March 15.

The City of Hickory’s Yard Waste Facility hours are 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Fridays only, beginning March 15. The facility is located on Cloninger Mill Road, which is off N.C. 127, near the bridge that crosses Lake Hickory and links to Alexander County. The hours will remain the same until all single ground mulch is gone.

The single ground mulch is made from yard waste collected by Solid Waste crews throughout the year. The mulch is composed of tree limbs that are ground into useable material for your landscape.

Single ground mulch will be $25 per 3-yard scoop (full-size pickup truck load).
