Leaf Mulch Processing
The leaf mulch is the end-product of 5,000 cubic yards of leaves vacuumed from city streets in the autumn. Removing and recycling the leaves into mulch provides a far more cost-effective solution than hauling and disposing of them. This practice also benefits the environment; leaf mulch naturally:
  • Turns clay-rich soil into nutrient-rich soil, making it healthier for trees and plants
  • Releases water into the soil at a slow rate
  • Creates zero waste in the process
