Compost available for purchase at County of Simcoe waste facilities until May 28
The County of Simcoe’s popular compost sale is open to residents until May 28 at all county waste facilities.
While quantities last, residents can purchase compost produced in-house using leaf and yard waste material generated throughout the county for $5 per carload, or $20 per truck or trailer load.
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 shovels to load bins, truck beds, or trailers. COVID-19 restrictions and public health measures are still in effect at County waste facilities. Please remember to distance yourself from others, and, where applicable, we encourage visitors to wear a mask.
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 suppresses weed growth.
