Mulch is still available to Vernon residents through the Department of Public Works.
The DPW will deliver a 4-cubic-yard load of mulch (based on quantities) for $60, DPW Director Robert Kleinhans said. Mulch will be dropped off onto driveways only at a location clearly marked by the resident, he said. Interested residents should call the Public Works Office at 860-870-3500 to schedule a delivery, he said.
Mulch will continue to be available at the Transfer Station to Vernon residents free of charge, Kleinhans said. A permit and punch card are not required for the mulch, Kleinhans said.
The Transfer Station is located on Hockanum Boulevard and is open Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sundays noon to 4 p.m.
