Get free wood chips for mulching
Please reach out to your Local Fire Authority for guidance on maintaining a defensible space around your home and the appropriate use of this material in your area to determine if this program is right for you.
Spreading a 3- to 4-inch layer of wood mulch on soil reduces the amount of water plants and trees need. Mulch slows evaporation and improves soil quality. Mulch also keeps roots cooler and helps prevent weed growth. We use a mixture of different tree materials for our mulch, which we make while clearing and pruning trees from electric wires.
We deliver free wood mulch, in unspecified amounts up to 13 cubic yards to homes or businesses. The amount of mulch delivered is based on truck size and work conducted. For more information about our mulch, call 1-800-743-5000.
Free recycled dirt program
PG&E offers free soil to customers to assist in their construction efforts. The soil was excavated during PG&E construction projects. By working together to recycle this material, which would otherwise be transported to landfills, we can reduce our environmental impact and carbon footprint. We will deliver the recycled soil in 10 cubic yard increments to homes or businesses. For more information about our recycled dirt program, call Building & Operations 1-877-743-7782, option 6. Or email RecycledDirtProgram@pge.com. Or if you are ready to request free dirt, visit the Recycled Dirt Request Form.
