Jump On In - then Get Leaves in the Bag by December 1!

  3. Brush bundles: Attach Compost It! sticker to each bundle. Bundles can be no larger than 4 feet long and 18 inches in diameter.

Bags and stickers are sold at many local grocery, home improvement and convenience stores. A complete list of vendors is available at
