MAPLE LEAVES WITH TAR SPOTS are collected with yard and garden debris during the COMPOST weeks of Fall Cleanup. Mulching or backyard composting will not prevent the spores from spreading, however temperatures achieved at the Compost Facility will destroy the fungus.
Yard Debris is collected the weeks of November 3 and 17th and material must be at curbside by the Monday of each week.
After Fall Cleanup is completed, customers may place raked leaves directly into their compost carts, or continue to use paper bags (or open rigid containers) and place 2 beside the green cart for regular compost collection. Only during Fall Cleanup is there no limit to quantity collected.
