Leaf Banks are public drop-off points to dispose of your garden leaves, all across the borough.

When properly stored and cared for, leaves turn into mulch, an amazing nutritional compost that will enrich your soil and help your plants grow.

All you have to do is pick up some Leaf Bank stickers from one of our Shops, collect fallen leaves in a biodegradable bag (which we provide), put a sticker on the bag, and deposit the bag at the most convenient and accessible site. Then you can return in a few months to collect a bag of compost for your garden, balcony, or house plants! Easy!
