Got Yard Waste to Turn Into Mulch? Here Are Some Easy Ways To Get It Done


Composting is a great way to reduce the amount of garbage that you send to landfills, and creating mulch is one of the most rewarding parts of the process. If you have yard waste that needs turning into mulch, here are some easy ways to get started.

Start a compost pile

Start a compost pile. Composting is a great way to use your yard waste, and it’s easy to do. If you are new to composting, check out this blog post on how to start a compost pile. When properly maintained, it will turn your yard waste into mulch that can help reduce weeds and keep plants healthy. It also keeps food scraps out of landfills where they become anaerobic (without oxygen) and produce methane—a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change.

Use a composter

How you get rid of your yard waste depends on which type of composter you have. Composters come in all shapes and sizes, from large community-scale bins to small plastic tubs that can be kept indoors. If you are using a home composting system, make sure it is the right size for your yard waste.

If you’re new to composting, it might seem like an overwhelming task at first—but don’t worry! Composting is easy and can be fun if done right. And best of all? It’s free!

Hire a company to collect your yard waste

  • Pros:
  • Convenience. It takes a lot of time and effort to gather yard waste yourself, and you may not have the right tools or equipment to do it properly. Hiring a company means they’ll take care of all the hard work for you.
  • Quality mulch. This is one of the biggest benefits! When you hire a company, they’re essentially running their business as an extension of your own—they’re doing what they do best so that you don’t have to worry about doing it yourself (or worse, getting it wrong).
  • Cost-effective solution that saves time and effort when compared with other options like paying someone else to haul away your yard waste or composting by hand at home using homemade bins or barrels.

Take it to your local recycling center

Recycling centers are exactly what they sound like: places where you can drop off materials that can be reused, recycled, or composted. These centers often accept specific items, but they are also open to taking whatever is in your trash bin if it’s recyclable. You might be able to find a recycling center near you by searching on Google or Yelp; if not, ask your city government where one is located and how to get there (public transportation options are usually available).

Many recycling centers have staff members who will happily accept any material that comes through the door—but sometimes you’ll have to pay a fee for them to take certain things away from you. If this ends up being the case for your yard waste, just keep an eye out for signs posted by employees so that there aren’t any surprises when it’s time for payment at checkout!
