Public Services and Parks and Recreation staff want to let everyone know that while our city has lost many trees as a result of last Sunday’s high winds, they have been taken to a facility to be recycled into mulch and compost. Richardson is one of five area cities that participates in a partnership with Texas Pure, which generates mulch and compost for the cities’ parks and landscaping and offers it to the public for purchase. 

Residents of the member cities may purchase the mulch and compost at a discount—to learn more, visit or visit the Custer Road Texas Pure facility at 9901 Custer Road, Plano.
