NOTICE: The City of Mesquite is currently out of compost. The Solid Waste Division anticipates having compost available in early winter.
All yard waste in Mesquite is collected at the Municipal Composting Facility and broken down organically through a method called composting. The finished materials are compost and mulch which can be used for gardening and other landscape purposes.
The Composting Facility is located at 3550 Lawson Road, south of Cartwright Road.
Compost and Mulch are available to our residents at no charge.
NEW Hours of Operation: Open daily (Monday-Saturday) from 9 am to 4 pm.
Closed: Sundays and holidays
Finished compost products, when available, are provided to Mesquite residents at no charge. Once a month, residents can pick up a maximum of two cubic yards of compost and mulch. Non-residents and commercial businesses may purchase compost for $22.00 per cubic yard and mulch for $4.00 per cubic yard. Mesquite residents must show a valid Texas drivers license showing a Mesquite address and City of Mesquite utility bill as proof of residency.
