Free Mulch Available … While Supplies Last

Leonardtown, MD – The Department of Public Works & Transportation continues to sponsor its “Free Mulch program while supplies last.  County residents are welcome to pick up mulch free of charge at the St. Andrew’s Landfill.  Mulch is available between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday.  The St. Andrew’s Landfill is closed on Sundays. 

Customers are reminded they are responsible for loading and transporting the mulch. Please bring a shovel, pitchfork or similar hand tool to load the mulch.  Covering the load with a tarp prior to transporting is required in order to minimize material from blowing off the vehicle.

If assistance is required, special needs exist or additional information is requested, please contact the Department of Public Works & Transportation at 301-475-4200, ext. *3550. Additional Recycling/Solid Waste Program information is available on the web at

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
