Beautification and Trash & Recycling16 Nov 2010 02:04 pm

The 2010 Philly Bagged Leaf Drive will begin Monday, November 8, and will end Friday, December 17. During this six-week program, the Philadelphia Streets Department will collect and compost leaves. This year, only bagged leaf collection will be offered to Philadelphia residents receiving City collection of trash and recycling materials.

Collection guidelines for bagged leaf collection:


* Bag leaves in brown paper biodegradable bags, which can be purchased at most major hardware or home improvement stores.
* Set leaf bags out next to trash and recyclables on trash day


* Bag leaves in plastic bags. Any leaves in plastic bags will be collected as trash.
* Mix trash and leaves.

Leaves in brown paper biodegrable bags may also be taken to any of the three Sanitation Convenience Centers:

* 3033 S. 63rd Street (63rd & Passyunk Ave.)
* Domino Lane and Umbria Street
* State Road and Ashburner Street
