Heads up, McKinney: Compost will be on sale for $16 a cubic yard during the month of August.
The yard waste (grass, leaves and branches) collected by IESI from residents in the City of McKinney is taken to a regional composting facility in Plano. The Plano facility is shared with the cities of Richardson, Allen and Frisco.
The facility produces compost, top dressing, soil blend and mulch. The products are marketed as Texas Pure and are available at retail locations throughout the area.
Partner city residents receive a discount on bulk products and notifications of sales that happen twice a year. A special coupon for McKinney residents is downloadable on the McKinney Green web site. Go to http://www.mckinneytexas.org/green.
