WARWICK — The Village of Warwick, in partnership with Sustainable Warwick, recently announced the availability of free compost and mulch for village residents.

The Municipal Compost Program began nearly three years ago as a method of utilizing various waste streams to create garden compost and mulch. The village worked with Sustainable Warwick and compost enthusiast Dave Washburn who had past experience in developing compost programs.

The compost is a formulated mixture of leaf mulch, horse manure and decomposed wood chips. The process of turning over the pile on a regular basis was performed by the Village Department of Public Works.

Washburn monitored temperatures to insure microbial breakdown of raw materials into garden soil.
