Popular compost and mulch sale returns for 2023
Between May 8 and May 27 the County of Simcoe is once again offering its popular compost sale at all County waste facilities.
While quantities last, for $5 per carload, or $20 per truck or trailer load, Severn residents can purchase compost produced in-house using leaf and yard waste material generated throughout the County of Simcoe.
Compost is a soil amendment used in gardens to add nutrients, or as a top dressing for lawns to help retain moisture. Compost sales are self-service, and residents should bring their own shovels to load bins, truck beds, or trailers.
Mulch is also available at County waste facilities. Mulch can be applied to soil surfaces, around trees, paths, flower beds, slopes and erosion prone areas, and as top dressing for flower and vegetable gardens. Mulch retains moisture, regulates soil temperatures, and will help to suppress weed growth.
