Fall leaf collection is back!

It’s (finally) fall again, so you know what that means. Fall leaf collection is back!

The Department of Sanitation is turning your leaves into compost for New York City’s street trees and community gardens, rather than letting the leaves rot in a landfill. Did we mention that’s not the best for the environment?

Certain neighborhoods across the city will receive special DSNY leaf collection services, including Community Boards 12 and 13 in southeast Queens.

Leaves can be set out in either a part lawn and leaf bag (see above) or in an open, unlined container. Please don’t use plastic bags!

Collection will be after 4 p.m. on these days:

  • Saturday, November 18
  • Saturday, December 2
