The number of visitors monthly has increased from a total of 65 in the first month of operation to a steady stream of 400-500 each month as of October 2009.

Citizens can pick up free mulch at the Hutto Recycling Center courtesy of Waste Management, the operator of the Williamson County Landfill. As an Alternative to burning brush, the landfill accepts brush and makes it into mulch for a fee of $5.50/cubic yard for clean brush.

Some recycling can also be done at the Williamson County Unified Road System yards at Taylor and Granger. See Hours of Operation information for a contact information and a detailed list of items accepted at those locations.
