Frequently Asked Questions:

What Type of Mulch Do You Deliver?

We deliver 3 cubic foot bags of premium shredded hardwood mulch. The mulch is a medium brown color. The mulch is a very high quality mulch distributed though a local nursery.

Where do you put the mulch?

We will deliver the mulch in neatly stacked (5-7 bags high) in the location of your choice on your driveway at the front of your home. Typically we place the stacks along the edge of your driveway to avoid blocking garage entry unless other instructions are provided. Feel free to use chalk to mark the desired location on your driveway or tape a sign for us on your garage door.

In neighborhoods where driveway access is via narrow alleys, we will deliver to an alternate location at the front of your home off the main street. It is very difficult for us to maneuver the trucks in the alleys and identify the correct home from the rear.

Due to time constraints, we unfortunately cannot deliver mulch to the side or back of your home; nor can we spread the mulch for you.

When will I receive my mulch?

Mulch delivery is a very long day for the Troop. Delivery starts first thing Saturday morning on delivery weekend.

We cannot predict exactly when during the delivery weekend your mulch will arrive. We use a system that loads trucks with deliveries to homes in close proximity, but also attempts to reduce the number of undelivered bags left in the truck at the end of a run.

Please do not be alarmed if your neighbor receives his mulch but we don't stop at your home - we'll be back on another run. We do not load the trucks such that all the homes on the same street will be in a single delivery run.

What do Troop 1570 and Packs 1570 and 1577 do with the proceeds

Our annual mulch sale is the only scouting fundraiser run by our organizations. The proceeds from our mulch sale are the only source of funds to operate the Troop and Packs for the following year. Significant portions of the proceeds go towards replacement and refurbishment of our camping equipment. In addition a large percentage of the proceeds are set aside in "scout accounts". The boys  use the funds in their scout accounts to offset portions of their costs to attend a week long summer camp or other scouting related costs such as equipment and uniform purchases.

Profits are divided with Cub Scout Packs 1570 and 1577.  They too rely on this as their sole source of funds to provide their programs. They use the money to provide pinewood derby kits, go on outings like rock climbing, snow tubing, ropes course and more.
