For the environment.
For the beauty of your home.

At Barnes, we operate one of the largest composting facilities in the region. In fact, our immense selection of mulches, soils and soil amendments are second to none. Which is one reason we’re a favorite stop for landscapers and homeowners alike.

If you’re looking to drop off your yard trimmings for recycling, we are a convenient and affordable resource for you. We’re also expanding our composting services by partnering with communities and organizations to implement food disposal programs. It’s all part of our commitment to be a true friend of the environment.
