The Compost Division is responsible for converting yard waste into usable compost and mulch. The Compost Center is located at 15th & Broadway, Monett, MO. This facility was made possible by funding from the City of Monett, Southwest Missouri Solid Waste Management District, and the Department of Natural Resources Solid Waster Management Programs.

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.
