Final week of fall leaf collection


Pickup runs until December 2 on your recycling day


The Boston Public Works Department will take your leaves and yard waste for composting if you don’t have anywhere to compost it yourself.

Here’s what to do:

—Place leaves and yard debris in large paper leaf bags or open barrels labeled “yard waste.” (Request labels here.) Please do NOT use plastic bags for leaves and yard debris!

—Tie branches with string in a maximum length of 3 feet.

—Do not put branches in barrels.

—Put branches, paper bags, and barrels on the curb by 7 am on the morning of your recycling day.
