Helping Santa Fe rethink their waste

Mulch
Green waste, or yard waste, consists of yard trimmings, leaves, and flowers from landscapes and parks.
Mulching or composting green waste is a great way to keep biodegradable waste out of the landfill.

Why Mulch?

Mulch is great for making your landscape or garden look nice by; suppressing weed growth, helping the soil retain water, reducing erosion, and providing nutrients through the breakdown of organic material.

Where can I find it?

Anyone can get FREE mulch at BuRRT if you load it yourself.  BuRRT can load large trailers and trucks for $3/cubic yard when you call in advance.  The mulch at BuRRT is ground green waste using a 2-inch or 4-inch screen and it is not composted.  The mulch may contain small amounts of weeds, seeds, plastic, paper, and metal.

The City of Santa Fe Waste Water Treatment Plant Division sells screened and composted mulch containing biosolids.

If you are looking for a particular kind or color of mulch, contact your local garden center for the styles and prices of mulch they carry.
