Why use Mulch and Compost from us?

  Purchase Compost and Mulch   

  • Finished Compost: $20/cy – Available at all Full-Service Drop-Off Centers. Compost is beneficial for the land in many ways, including as a soil conditioner, a fertilizer and as a natural pesticide for soil.  Our stock is tested regularly to ensure it is weed seed and pathogen free. 

  • Double Hammered Mulch: $15/cy – Only available at Compost Central location. This is wood “stick” mulch that has been run through our hammer-mill system two times.  It is less stringy than single hammered mulch and is great for plant bedding.  

  • Single Hammer Mulch: $10/cy Available at all Full-Service Drop-Off Centers. A chunkier product than the Double Hammered.
  • Wood Nuggets: $13.50/cy – Only available at Compost Central location. The deep dark brown "woodchip like" by-product of our compost screening process.
  • Bagged Compost$3.25/1.5 cu.ft - Only available at Compost Central & Foxhole locations. Our already fantastic compost material, but bagged and ready to go.
