MADISON, NJ - With over 38 years of experience at the Department of Public Works, David Maines, Superintendent, and the DPW team, know how to make magic with trees and debris. Super storm Sandy may have hit hard and rocked Madison back in October, but the Department of Public Works turned Sandy's negativity inside out and produced 6000 cubic yards of mulch. "We usually use between 350-400 yards of loose mulch and another 525 bags of it. This was a nice cut in spending and a huge benefit to Madison," David Maines said.

“This town is so lucky we have the resources to rebound from a bad storm. There are still so many towns not up and going,” he said. Although there will be 45-60 work sites covered with mulch on Saturday, May 4th, for the traditional May Day event, there’s still an abundance to share with Madisonians for free.

The Department of Public Works is offering a ten yard limit of mulch at no cost, and you can call 973-593-3088 between the hours of 7:30-3:00 for a free delivery made on Fridays. If you’re a Madison resident, call the Department of Public Works for a share of what Sandy is now giving back - a mountain of mulch.
