Mulch and Compost

The Temple-Belton Wastewater Treatment facility makes Tri-Gro products available to the public for purchase (only checks and money orders are accepted). The most popular product is a compost humus produced with wood products and wastewater bio-solids. Since Tri-Gro is processed at temperatures above 133 degrees, it is free of weed seeds, plant diseases and pathogens.
