Leaves Coming Out Your Ears? Drop 'Em Off

Oct 31, 2014 01:29PM ● By City Journals Staff

Leaf collection bags, in bundles of 10, are currently available to residents of Holladay and Cottonwood Heights at area libraries, fire stations, recreation facilities and city offices.

“We have a limited supply of bags, so we request that people take one bundle per household,” Wasatch Front Waste and Recycling Program Manager Bill Hobbs said.

Full leaf bags, not limited to those supplied through the program, can be placed in dumpsters at designated locations in both cities until Nov. 30. Dumpsters are emptied daily. Hobbs advises residents to come back the next day rather than leave their bags on the ground if the bins are full.

Curbside pick-up is not available through this program, but residents who have green waste containers can use them for leaf disposal.

The collection program began more than 10 years ago as a way to limit the amount of leaves making their way into the storm drain system.
