The Mulch Store is a key community resource for landscaping materials in the Twin Cities Metro area. Most of our products are created from our recycling and composting efforts in which we promote and develop with many of the communities within the metro area. Our products are used in applications from your backyard garden to commercial rain gardens and highway restoration projects to help improve the soils that surround us. We're fully committed to keeping the communities where we work and live beautiful and sustainable. Our facilities sell a variety of landscaping products to help achieve that goal.

Many of our sites also accept yard waste, wood waste, soil and sod for drop off. Click on the site nearest to you for more information about disposal and product availability. Our Empire site also accepts commercial and residential organics for recycling. Click on Organics Recycling tab at the top of the page for more information.

Please check our site information for products available at that site and for hours of operation. Have questions? Visit our FAQ page.

The Mulch Store has four Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) certified sites to process Ash tree waste. All Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) quarantined materials (branches, limbs, stumps or yard waste mixed with brush) are required by the MDA to be taken to a certified facility. The quarantine area consists of Anoka, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott and Dakota Counties. During the EAB flight season, brush material may NOT be removed from these counties. Please contact our main office at 952-946-6999 if you have further questions.
