Gardeners can get their hands on free mulch through Feb. 3.

The Oklahoma City Parks and Recreation Department is offering the mulch, which was made from recycled Christmas trees.

From dawn until dusk through Feb. 3, and while supplies last, piles of mulch will be available for free pickup in four Oklahoma City parks:

• Will Rogers Park, 3600 Pat Murphy Drive.

• Wheeler Park, 1120 S Western Ave.

• Dolphin Wharton Park, 301 NE 63.

• Woodson Park, 3028 SW 36.

Those collecting the mulch must bring their own equipment and bags.

The recycled trees were part of a program in December and early January. The Oklahoma City Parks and Recreation Department invited people to drop off Christmas trees for recycling, and made free mulch available while the trees were being dropped off. The rest of the mulch made from recycled trees is now available.
