The City of San Diego is offering help to hundreds of homeowners impacted by the Lilac wildfire that struck neighborhoods in north San Diego County. From Monday, Dec. 18 through Sunday, Dec. 31, people will be allowed to load up to 2 cubic yards of 4-inch mulch material or compost processed at the Miramar Greenery facility located at 5180 Convoy St.

Self-loading is free; if a truck is loaded by City staff the fee varies according to the amount of material. Residents from Bonsall, Fallbrook, Vista, unincorporated areas and/or Oceanside can pick up the free product while supplies last.

“We encourage our North County neighbors to come visit the Miramar Greenery to pick up some free mulch and compost soon, before the weather changes and it begins to rain as it typically does this time of year,” said Environmental Services Director, Mario X. Sierra.

Mulch and compost can be used as natural soil preservation supplements. Wherever fires hit, these products can be spread to promote new growth and prevent flooding when rain finally hits San Diego this winter.

The Miramar Greenery is located north of State Route 52 at 5180 Convoy St. Hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Sunday and most holidays.┬áThe landfill is closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
