Brush Recycling Center

Awhile back we trimmed all of our tree's in our yard but didn't do anything with the branches that we cut off. They have been sitting on the side of our house, which is the white trash way. We finally loaded up the truck with the branches and headed out to a recycling center in Round Rock. They take our branches and turn it into mulch. If you are a resident of Round Rock, then you can get FREE mulch as well as dropping off your branches. You do all of the work..... you take the branches out of your truck and throw them in the pile and you scoop up your own mulch, but it is worth it. Jim has taken our branches to the city dump before, and it cost more and isn't as good for the environment.
