Mulch Giveaway

Adding mulch to your landscape does more than make your property more attractive. It also enriches the soil on your property. The City of Ravenna offers a program that can save you money and beautify the look of your property.

The City of Ravenna annually distributes FREE mulch/compost to residents of Ravenna and Ravenna Township.


  • Residents must bring their own containers and provide own labor
  • No contractors or machine loading
  • Materials must be loaded by hand only
  • Proof of residency will be required


Dates for the Spring 2023 mulch pick up will be posted in early Spring. See the City’s calendar for dates.  


City Transfer Site on E. Lake Street.

For dates and times of the next free mulch distribution, frequently visit our City’s calendar or contact the Service Director’s office at 330-296-6326.  The dates and times will also be placed on the city’s sign that is in front of the Portage County Courthouse.
