Mulch2go is a new division of Southeast Pallet & Wood Products, a large logging operation that harvests logs in Southeastern Manitoba. From these logs we produce pallets at our sawmill operation located in Blumenort just north of Steinbach, Manitoba. We are certified through the Sustainable Forest Initiatives Standards (SFI).

The off-cuts from the sawmill are put into our landscape mulch. We grind the off-cuts to 4” then regrind to 2”, this is done to give us consistency of product and best coverage when coloring the mulch.

We use only virgin material, mostly Jack Pine with about 10% Aspen, in our mulch. We do not grind building demolition debris or old pallets or crating material into mulch to avoid potential contamination.
Our natural mulch either 4” or 2” is organic; we are currently debating the value of certification. Our colored mulch only comes in 2”. Our colored mulch we use a paint which is non-toxic and non-hazardous and environmentally friendly, which is safe for animals, plants and children plus provides good material coverage. Our standard colors besides natural are Red, Brown and Black. We will provide other colors on special request.

We have capability to deliver in loads from 1 yd in a tote to 110 cubic yards with our walking floor trailers.
