Is there a better way to purchase landscaping mix for planting, rather than buying bags and bags at the local Lowes or Nursery (which is costly)? I need a couple of truck loads. Does the city sell it by the (pick up)truck load? Someone in Plano was able to get it, at a reasonable price, through the City of Plano, but I was hoping to find it closer.. Thanks!

The city does not sell landscaping materials. All the yard waste from our residential collection program goes to a regional composting facility. The City of Plano is under contract to operate this facility and the compost generated as a result of this process is called Plano Pure. Large quantities of this product are available for purchase at the Custer Road Facility, 9901 Custer Road, Plano. 972-941-7975. More information about Plano Pure Products and pricing can be found at www.planopure.com. Delivery is available.
If you are interested in colored wood mulch, this can be purchased in bulk at a reasonable price from Consolidated Recycling Services, 1629 Parker Road, Carrollton, 214-553-5300. The mulch from this facility is made from wood collected and recycled from Frisco’s green building sites.
Both of these mixes are by products of a Frisco recycling program your purchase of these materials help us to complete the recycling circle.
Please do not hesitate to give me a call if you are need of more information.
