Leave your leaves here: Leaf drive underway in Juneau

Don’t just throw them away.

Need a place to leave your leaves?

Rather than just throwing leaves away in plastic bags destined for the landfill, Lisa Daughterty of Juneau Composts! is offering an alternative.

It’s the third year in a row Daughterty is hosting a leaf drive, accepting leaves that will then be used in composting.

Find out more information about the leaf drive — including where to drop off leaves — by watching the video above.
