Extra ‘Leaves Only’ Bins Now Available

LeavesOnlyBinAd2013

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?

  1. Place them in your curbside compost bin (i.e. tan can) for weekly pick up. Raking weekly should keep your leaves from piling up.
  2. 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!
  3. Request an extra ‘leaves only’ bin.

Starting today, Salt Lake City is offering special ‘leaves only’ bins by request. Here are some quick facts about the program:

  • Bins will be provided on a first come, first served basis.
  • ‘Leaves only’ bins are provided free of charge and are intended to supplement resident’s curbside compost bin in the event of excess leaves.
  • Bins will be collected weekly on your curbside collection day throughout the fall.

To request your ‘leaves only’ bin, call (801) 535-6999 or email SLCgreen@slcgov.com.  Please provide your name, address and phone number.
