How Do I Dispose of Leaves?

When crisp autumn days arrive in Connecticut, there’s a chance you’ll find yourself outside, with a rake in hand, cleaning up leaves. While the task may seem simple (and tiresome) to complete, you might wonder what to do with all the foliage you just cleaned up.

Before a breeze scatters those leaves across your lawn once more, here are some ways you can get rid of them:

Leaf Disposal Ideas

Kick Them to the Curb

Depending on what town you live in, some let residents toss their leaves to the curb — but they must be in a separate bag, away from recyclables and the garage.

Create a Compost

Another idea of how you can get rid of your autumn leaves is to create a compost pile. Again, depending on your town’s regulations (whether they allow this or not), this is an effortless and straightforward way to help not only get rid of that foliage but to put it to work!

Run the Lawnmower Over Them

If you’re looking to give your property a trim, and get rid of pesky leaves, consider using your lawnmower. Of course, depending on how cool it is, you won’t want to cut your lawn too short — so, consider raising your lawnmower a tad so that the blade doesn’t give your grass a close shave.

Once complete, begin to cut your lawn — within minutes, you’ll not only clean your leaves up effortlessly, but you’ll also have a freshly manicured lawn that will be the envy of your neighbors!
