Ottawa Location

The Midwest Trading river terminal facility is located on the Illinois River in Ottawa just east of the downtown area.  At this facility, bark and other bulk materials are brought in by the barge load, allowing us to serve our market area with a wide range of products at competitive prices.  Bark is processed here and shipped to our sales yards in Virgil and St. Charles and shipped to our customers in full semi load quantities.  We also have an automated bagging line in Ottawa used for packaging mulch, compost, and soil mixes.

During our spring and summer season, customers are allowed to pick up products at this facility.  These pick up orders have a 5 CY minimum with no pickup trucks allowed (semi-trucks take priority in loading). Please see details below for operating hours and restrictions.
