Bag Your Leaves

Keep our rivers, lakes, ponds, and streams clean --  Bag Your Leaves!

Bag or compost your leaves, but do not rake them into the street or dump them down storm drains! Blocking storm drains can cause flooding, and large amounts of leaves in our water can lead to an excess of decaying organic material in waterways with results that are harmful to both humans and animals.

Why do leaves cause water pollution?

Left on land, leaves decompose, feeding your plants and enriching your soil. But when large amounts of leaves are washed off our lawns, down our driveways, into storm drains, and into our water bodies -- they release phosphorus and nitrogen into our water, contributing to water pollution. 

These elevated levels of nutrients in our water:

  • Cause “blue-green algae”, or cyanobacteria blooms, which are toxic to both humans and wildlife and are considered a public health hazard
  • Kill fish through the depletion of oxygen in the water, called “eutrophication”
  • Cause the growth of large amounts of algae and invasive plants, choking up the waterway

What can YOU do?

Keep leaves out of the storm drain and your rivers, lakes, and ponds! 

  • Bag your leaves for curbside pick-up.
  • Mix your leaves into your compost pile, creating a nutrient-rich fertilizer for your plants.
  • Use a mulching mower and create mulch from your leaves to use in flower beds.

FAQs

What is a flood zone and is my property located within one?

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) categorizes areas located in close proximity to bodies of water as varying in risk of flooding during common storm events.  Location of a property within the flood zones designated by FEMA will typically have an impact on land usage and insurance costs.  To determine if your property is within a flood zone, you can visit our office and view the maps or visit the FEMA website above.
