Are your chips considered GOOD?
The Landscape Recycling Center takes tree material and we create the different types of mulch through our grinding processes which divert thousands of yard waste material from collecting in the landfills. We often look for way to help the community the supports us in diverting yard waste material from the landfills.
Companies that use chippers on the brush materials that they have cut and removed, often need to dispose of this raw material is fresh unprocessed mulch. This material has not been seasoned and all the weed seeds, brush diseases and insects have not been filtered out. Many people don't understand the importance of when applying fresh cut material to your plants you shouldn't apply diseases or infested material to your plants. This is why annually we try to offer discounts for company that remove brush and run it through the chipper that are disposed at our facilities. We do this because along with offering a local disposal facilities for these companies we want to divert majority to all of this material.
