Instead, we encourage everyone to grasscycle and/or compost the grass and leaves generated on their properties or alternatively deliver these materials along with your brush to one of the municipal leaf and yard depots.  Mulched or shredded leaves are an excellent source of nutrients and protection for your lawn and garden.  Mulch helps retain moisture by reducing the soils exposure to sun and slowing evaporation.  It chokes out weeds too!
