Fall Leaf Collection

Certain neighborhoods (PDF) should set out fall leaves for collection on specific Saturdays in November and December; see the schedule below.

Residents in these areas should set out their leaves either in a paper lawn & leaf bag, or in an open, unlined container. DSNY turns the leaves into compost, a natural soil amendment.

DSNY Announcement: New Food Scraps and Yard Waste Collection Service Available

With the rollout of curbside service this year to Brooklyn Community Board 2, the northwestern section of City Council District 35 now has organics collection.

Organics collection is critical to New York’s effort to increase recycling and decrease landfilling of vital resources. The goal is to provide all New Yorkers with access to curbside organics recycling collection services by the end of 2018. Organics comprise 31% of the residential waste stream – waste that could be recycled locally for beneficial use as compost and clean energy. For New York to be truly sustainable, we must take actions such as this to reduce our collective environmental footprint.
