SERVPRO of Foxborough Explains Fall Storm Safety
Falling leaves are often the first signs of the fall season. As the piles of raked leaves build up, many are faced with how to dispose of them!
People like to burn leaves or throw trash onto piles, such as household garbage, construction debris, or old papers. This can actually cause more damage than good.
Burning materials such as yard waste, grass clippings, and leaves may be permissible depending on your town’s ordinances. If you decide to burn leaves, do not use flammable liquids to ignite the debris. Keep an eye on the fire at all times and be prepared to extinguish it at any moment. Safety should always be the number one concern.
There are plenty of safe alternatives for you to do instead of burning leaves.
- You can recycle tree limbs, grass clippings, and leaves.
- You can also compost items into mulch or chipped them into landscaping material.
- Many cities and towns provide a curbside collection of bagged leaves. Check with your local public works department.
- Call a yard waste or junk removal service, they will take the debris to the dump or recycling center.
There are plenty of ways to get rid of your leaves this fall, it just depends on what works best for you. Remember safety first.
