Compost Facility Keeps East Texas Green

Jacksonville, TX (7/11/15) – The Neches Compost Facility has been accepting biosolids from five East Texas Communities since 2000. Sludge gets mixed with wood chips and is processed for 15 days. Afterwards, the mixture is separated into compost and mulch to be sold. The majority of the wood for the composting comes from the public bringing in loads of debris at no cost.
