Environmental Wood Solutions, EWS, was started in 2000 as a complimentary company to L.R. Mullins Contracting. EWS is a full-service waste wood recycler.  Pallets, crates, cut-off lumber and harvested materials that previously went to landfills and incinerators, now have a second generation use.

As one of the largest land clearing contractors in Michigan, Mullins Contracting provides the raw materials to EWS in the form of trees and stumps.  EWS recycles these products to produce a high quality landscape mulch in both hardwoods and dyed materials. EWS also provides a convenient disposal operation at our facility in Orion, Michigan. Cut products, leaves, brush, stumps, logs, pallets and construction material can be brought to us for disposal.
We can also provide a dumpster to your location with convenient delivery and pick-up, as well as provide automatic switch outs for further convenience. Call for pricing.

EWS provides a time saving and cost saving alternative to traditional disposal. We believe recycling is the answer.

In addition to EWS we own and operate Newark Aggregate and Landscape Supply.

In 2008 EWS registered with the state of Michigan as a compost facility. You will find both of our facilities, EWS and Newark, listed on the Michigan DEQ web site as compost sites.

During the compost season of spring through fall our EWS facility will accept as much as 2000 tons of yard waste material per week. We grind and transport the material on a daily basis to our Newark facility. There, the material is stored and turned on a regular basis for approximately two years. The material is then screened and made ready for sale as compost.
