Use Paper Bags - they're compostable too!

LeafDrop Paper Bag Unlike plastic bags, brown paper bags can be composted along with the leaves; saving time and reducing plastic waste. Paper leaf bags can be found at local hardware stores but call ahead to confirm they are in stock. Residents unable to get paper leaf bags, may bring their leaves in plastic bags.
