The Town of Bristol offers free compost and mulch to its citizens.

Drive up to the landfill on Minturn Road off Metacom and its yours for the taking. The compost is almost black and is mixed with sludge from the sewer department. The mulch has no sludge in it. The compost is best used when dug into the soil when planting. The mulch is best when used as a top dressing to hold weeds in check and moisture in place. (If the compost is used as mulch it can be a bit smelly - especially after rain.)
