Storm Debris Now Mulch That Is Available for Free

Storm Debris Now Mulch That Is Available for Free

Due to the overwhelming amount of mulch made from storm tree debris, the St. Charles County Highway Department is giving away the material to the public starting Monday, June 24. The mulch has not been treated for termites or other bugs, and interested individuals and parties must be able to load and haul the material.

This huge pile of wood chips is what's left of tens of thousands of tons of trees that were knocked down by the storms on May 31st.   This pile is at the new St. Charles County Highway Department Garage on 94 just down from Francis Howell High School.   This mound is over 30 feet tall, over 200 feet long, and 50 to 60 feet wide in spots.
