Extra ‘Leaves Only’ Bins Now Available
Crisp air, bright colors and falling leaves — fall is in full swing in Salt Lake City!
But what should you do with all of those extra leaves?
- Place them in your curbside compost bin (i.e. tan can) for weekly pick up. Raking weekly should keep your leaves from piling up.
- Try composting your leaves at home with a backyard compost bin, or by mulching them into your grass, flower beds or gardens. Gotta love free soil amendment!
- Request an extra ‘leaves only’ bin.
