Looking for a new home for your horse manure? Trying to get rid of woodchips from your last job site? Or is your fall garden lacking in good compost?

Welcome to the Organic Materials Exchange where you can find a home for your unwanted 'organic' waste or find useful materials for your garden! Currently our listings include livestock manure, compost and various types of mulch such as wood chips, coffee grinds, and more. If you have other materials you’d like to list, please e-mail or call us with your suggestions.

Our mission is to reduce waste and improve water quality on the Central Coast by giving reusable organic waste a new life.

Please visit the Publications & Links page for information on composting, mulching and other useful tips.
