Practical Recycling at Willow Creek Springs is at the heart of our goals for sustainable organic gardening of herbs, fruits, vegetables and ornamental plants.
Willow Creek Springs produces top grade organic potting mix, worm castings and teas using a method known as vermicomposting. Put simply, we feed wood chips, paper and the green waste from our botanical garden to our millions of hungry redworms. We encourage the community to bring in their newspaper, magazines, household paper, and even workplace paper waste to dump here in our composting bins. Feed thousands of hungry red worms instead of the city or county dump.
Arborists, contact us about dumping chips at WCS for free. We can process in excess of 100+ truckloads per year! Call for an appointment 951-436-6312.
Livestock owners, contact us to arrange dump of aged manure at no cost.
We recycle plastic nursery pots for plants from six packs to 15 gallon containers, bring us your empty containers rather than choking your landfill and we will give you nursery or gift store credit!
Items we recycle include: lumber, building materials, potting mix, plastic nursery pots (all sizes), plastic buckets with or without lids, yard tools, hand tools, gardening gloves, aprons, food grade industrial plastic barrels, IBC containers, hydroponic medium and more. If you have something that you think might fit into our recycling program but isn’t listed give a call at 951-436-6312.
