Mulch and Compost

The City of Valparaiso works in conjunction with Porter County Recycling and Waste Reduction District to produce compost and mulch from the leaves, brush and logs collected by Public Works. These materials are taken to the Compost Site where along with yard debris from Porter County residents it is processed into mulch and compost. Diverting these materials saves landfill costs, as well as providing valuable landscape material to residents.
