In addition to our great products, we offer several services to help you and the community. We offer Recycling of your yard waste, a community Care and Share Program to benefit Care and Share, Blower Truck Installations for fast and even distribution of lighter materials, and Mobile Grinding & Land Clearing.
We recycle and manufacture nearly all of our own mulch from recycled, clean wood waste. This allows us to offer quality mulches at competitive prices.
Yard Waste Accepted
- Christmas Trees
- Fill Dirt
Yard Waste Not Accepted
- Anything that has been painted, stained, or treated
There is a small fee Monday-Friday for recycling. However, every Saturday you can drop off yard waste at no charge with donations to Care and Share. Sod, dirt, and rock are charged at normal pricing. This is for homeowners only and does not apply to contractors.
Care and Share Program
Partnering with the community and Care and Share we are helping to alleviate some of the fire risk in a city that has hundreds of acres of dry forest.
Residents of Teller and El Paso counties can drop off their yard waste (branches, needles, leaves, grass and more) at our location for free every Saturday with canned food or monetary donations which all go to Care and Share. Rock, sod, and dirt are all charged at normal pricing, however. Contractors still have to pay normal dumping rates. Please see a list of our accepted items under Recycling.
From 2007-2011, residents donated over 1 millions pounds of food, and the last 6 years has averaged 200,000 pounds per year! Thank you to all who have participated in this program!

Blower Truck Installations
The Rocky Top Resources blower truck offers a fast and easy way to distribute large quantities of mulch or seeding. We also can help you with erosion control for your landscape.
The pressurized blower system provides precision application of a consistent layer of material. The bed of the truck can hold as much as 35 yards of material.
See our truck in action in the video to the right.
Mobile Grinding & Land Clearing
We also have a mobile grinding unit and can offer land clearing as well. We have the capability to process large quantities of material in a short amount of time.
