California American Water’s (CAW) Mulch Madness event on Saturday, April 2 in Thousand Oaks was a great success! CAW partnered with Conejo Recreation and Park District (CRPD) on the location and gave the leftover mulch to CRPD for their parks. More than 200 customers lined up in trucks and other vehicles to get up to one cubic yard of mulch. Options included picking up pre-bagged mulch, having mulch loaded into customers’ trucks or bagging the mulch themselves. CAW also gave away 133 rain barrels to Mulch Madness participants.
CAW’s vendor sponsored a free raffle for all attendees. Prizes included a low-flow Niagara Stealth Toilet for first place, a $50 Lowe’s gift card for second place and a $25 Starbucks gift card for third place. Due to the success of the event, CAW is considering additional Mulch Madness events in its other districts.
