Longview opens new, larger compost site on Swinging Bridge Road

LONGVIEW (KYTX) - Compost has a new home in one East Texas city.
Longview cut the ribbon at its new compost site on Swinging Bridge Road. That's a mile south of Harrison Road.
Any Longview residential sanitation customer can bring clipped tree branches and shrubs to the site to be converted to mulch -- and you can pick up some mulch too, all at no extra cost.
"This is all part of a plan put forth by our council and mayor to lessen our carbon footprint, to make this a more sustainable place and to just help keep Longview a great place to live, work and play," Longview Recycling Coordinator David Simmons says.
The city wants to expand the service to let people from neighboring cities use the compost site.
