It's everybody's least favorite fall chore but it's important to dispose of fallen leaves properly to keep them out of our storm drains. Here are a few helpful tips to keep our waterways clean:
- Rake/blow leaves into a pile, bag them, and then toss them in with your trash.
- Compost the leaves. If you don’t have a compost bin at your home, look for upcoming leaf recycling events.
- Set your mower to mulch and let the leaves fertilize your lawn naturally.
