Just finished giving your landscape a makeover?  Consider green waste recycling rather than tossing it in your trash.  Green waste that is not contaminated with trash can be mulched to prevent taking up space at the landfill.

Mulch No-No’s:

  •  Agave
  •  Cactus
  •  Pallets – Pallets usually have nails and are treated, which is not desired for landscape applications.
  •  Palm fronds – The fibers in a palm frond are too difficult to mulch or compost.
  •  Soil (clean or contaminated)
  •  Lumber – This includes plywood, sheet rock, and chipboard
  •  Tree trunks & stumps
