The City of Chino Hills and Republic Services have scheduled a mulch giveaway event for Chino Hills residents on Saturday, October 3 starting at 7:30 am, while supplies last, at The Shoppes at Chino Hills overflow parking lot on Shoppes Drive near Boys Republic Drive. Participants must wear face coverings. Three products will be available: wood chips, mulch, and compost. Wood chips and mulch can be placed around trees and planting beds to retain moisture. Compost adds nutrients when mixed with soil. Be prepared to confirm your Chino Hills address. Bring your own shovel and container or bags (no Republic Services containers allowed). Loading directly into a vehicle, trailer, hitch box, etc. is not allowed. Due to the popularity of the program, each participant is limited to 60 gallons of mulch. For more information, please call 909-364-2800.
