Topeka’s Biomass Recycling Center

The City also contracts with Garick Inc. for disposal and woodchip services, both for a fee. These chips can be used in the home landscape as mulch. Benefits from the use of wood chips as mulch include improved soil quality, better water retention, playground safety surface, and a microclimate that is more conducive to plant health. An attendant will be available to load chips for you.

The address for the facility is 2200 NW Waterworks Way, which is located just north of I-70 and MacVicar.

For pricing and hours of operation, call 785-368-3762, or visit the Garick website.
