The Council Bluffs Recycling Center grinds trees into mulch and makes it available to the public. Mulch is available to residents in two forms:
Landscape mulch, sold for $35.00 per ton
Construction lumber mulch, free to residents if you load it, or $7 per bucket for staff to load
Delivery within the city limits is available. Call the Recycling Center for more information.
Help reduce the spread of the emerald ash borer!
Effective February 4, 2014, the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship established a quarantine on the entire state of Iowa to prevent the spread of the emerald ash borer (EAB).
All mulch (landscape and lumber) products produced by the Council Bluffs Recycling center are affected by the emerald ash borer quarantine and will no longer be available for sale or transport to any area outside of the quarantine boundary. For more information on EAB, visit our Emerald Ash Borer Website.
