Hauling all your leaves and yard debris away from your property is insane!
What we refer to yard debris is really nutrition for your yard!
Mulching in place and composting has numerous benefits:
financial
saves you money on fertilizers and mulch
saves your village money on carting and handling fees
environmental
reduces carbon emissions from trucking your stuff away plus trucking bags of fertilizer & mulch to you, not to mention the emissions produced in producing & packaging mulch & fertilizer!

These are just a sampling of the benefits.
