Fall Yard Maintenance

What Should I Do With My Leaves?
Chop your leaves before composting or mulching with a hoe, shovel, or power mower to help them decompose more quickly.

Compost
Leaves make an excellent addition to any compost pile.  

Mulch
Leaves are rich in carbon, phosphorus, and potassium — all essential nutrients needed by plants. Spread autumn leaves over your garden and around the bases of bushes, trees, and perennials. During the winter, leaves minimize the alternate freezing and thawing of the soil which often damages plant roots. Pine needles and oak leaves make a good mulch for acid-loving perennials like rhododendrons, lilies of the valley, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, spruces, yews, butterfly weed and cardinal flowers.

Christmas Trees

Please do not discard your tree at curbside. The trash hauler will not pick up Christmas Trees.

Again this year real Christmas trees will be accepted at the Town Yard Waste Drop-off Facility located at 2400 Shady Court. Please remove all tinsel, wires, ornaments, hooks and tree stands.
