Recycled Products

Materials brought to LRC are processed into mulches and composts that are 100% natural with no additives or chemical dyes. All mulches are made from indigenous woods that are by-products of local tree maintenance--no exotic, Canadian, Pacific Northwest or South American Rainforest wood species. Other products such as granite fines, asphalt millings and street pavers are materials that have been specifically salvaged for recycling. First-time customers are encouraged to visit our site to learn the differences between our products prior to purchase.

Composts

Screened Garden Compost
Black loam appearance, very fine texture

Made from: 100% local leaf and other plant material. Requires over a year for LRC to complete the process of turning, screening and stockpiling.

Applications: Excellent soil amendment that enriches and improves both sandy (adds water retention capabilities) and clay (adds porosity and air space) soils. Can also be used as a top dressing for lawns or worked into flower and vegetable gardens. Great for container gardening as well! Average pH is 7.5.

Up to 35-Gallon Bags/Containers: $6 | Bulk: $30/cubic yd

Stable-To-Soil Enhancer (Formerly Mushroom Compost – renamed to better describe our product)
Light brown and very fine textured material that can retain manure odor for several weeks

Made from: Hardwood bark, straw material and horse manure from local stables that is composted into a high-quality finished product.

Applications: Natural fertilizer for non-food crop landscapes. Excellent source of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). In addition, manure returns organic matter and other nutrients such as calcium, magnesium and sulfur to the soil, building soil fertility and quality.
