It's a job we all have to do ... rake leaves!
And the city's asking you to keep them away from drains and out of the street.
City leaders say raking leaves into the street can push them into drains, causing flooding.
The leaves also hurt aquatic life in the areas the drains flow into.
The city asks you bag your leaves, and the city will pick them up off the curb to make into composting.
You can also drop leaves at the Urban Farm in Binghampton.
It’s working to provide healthy food options in low-income areas of our city.
Contact Jakob Wiig at Jakob.Wiig@gmail.com with Urban Farms if you’d like for you leaves to contribute to the Urban Farms compost.
