Here are the best deals during the month of March (WTVD)

March may be all about the madness on the basketball court, but in North Carolina it is also about the deals. There are plenty of savings to help usher in spring and one of the best comes from the City of Raleigh.


The City of Raleigh Solid Waste Services Department is holding a 'Buy One Get One Free Spring Promotion' at the City's Yard Waste Center. The deal allows a BOGO deal for mulch sizes from a bag to a truck bed full. The mulch is created from leaves, grass clippings, shrubbery trimmings, tree limbs, and other yard waste that is collected at the curb each week. The Yard Waste Center staff follows strict guidelines in producing high-quality mulch for sale. The mulch is created in an all-natural facility using a month-long process to eliminate weed seeds, pesticides, or chemicals that can be found in yard waste.

The following is important information about the "Buy One, Get One Free" promotion:

Coupon is not required for this promotion;

The "Buy One, Get One Free" promotion applies to mulch and leaf mulch only while supplies last;
