Compost: Compost adds organic matter
and helpful microorganisms to your soil. It is made from
yard wastes, including leaves, grass clippings, cornstalks,
hay or straw, wood chips, and other plant debris, which
are windrowed regularly for decomposition to occur. The
materials are then screened to uniform size and texture.
Mulch: Mulch is made from chipped brush.
It absorbs rainfall and runoff, therefore preserving moisture
in the soil.
The following items can be dropped off for composting:
brush, leaves, grass, hay, straw, and yard waste.
