Our yearly collection of loose leaves is stockpiled and turned periodically to create a great leaf mulch which can be used to enrich gardens, landscaping, flower beds, etc...  In an effort to reduce/reuse yard waste; the Street Department offers leaf mulch free to the public.

Note: When hauling leaf mulch; we request the mulch be covered to avoid blowing out onto the streets as you travel to your destination.
