October 2, 2023 at 9:39 am

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.
