Mulch Distribution

The Process

Throughout the year, city crews pick up yard waste such as grass clippings, branches, shrubs and leaves throughout the City. These items are taken to the city's composting facility on E. Lake St. and are stored in individual areas based on type of waste. Some items, such as waste in biodegradable yard bags are periodically "turned" by front end loader throughout the year. This process speeds the bio-degrading processes, turning the material into compost.
All yard waste collected is processed on site and turned  into much for distribution.  

The Result
Created are two types of mulch, leaf mulch and wood mulch, which are then distributed to city residents.
