Get Help with Your Fall Garden

Great gardens start with great soil. Allen residents receive a discount on local compost, topdressing, bedding mix and more when they order in bulk from a Texas Pure Products facility. Texas Pure Products are created from yard waste collected in Allen, Frisco, McKinney, Plano and Richardson. By separating yard waste from other trash, residents divert about 60,000 tons of yard debris from the landfill each year! Tree trunks, limbs and brush are ground into mulch; yard trimmings collected in brown compostable bags are also ground and used to make compost and topdressing.
