Recycling Leaves

Why recycle leaves:

Recycling dry leaves is an energy saving and environmentally friendly way to dispose of fallen leaves. Recycling leaves is considerably better than just burning them or sending them to a municipal compost site. Burning leaves tends to release a lot of smoke and other unwanted pollutants which can be harmful for people with breathing problems. Recycling grass can replace up to 25% of chemical fertilizers. If not recycled, lawn and yard waste can constitute as much as 50% of the refuse sent to landfills during summer months.�
