RECOVER GREEN WASTE AT HOME

COMPOST FALLEN LEAVES AND GRASS DIRECTLY ON YOUR LAWN
Mulch your leaves with your lawn mower! By decomposing on the surface of your lawn, the leaves bring mineral elements in addition to those provided by grass clippings, compost or natural fertilizers.

COMPOST YOUR GREEN WASTE IN YOUR DOMESTIC COMPOST BIN.
Store your leaves for use in your compost bin all year long.
Leaf compost is an excellent conditioner that corrects soils that are too impermeable or too porous by absorbing 300 to 500 % its weight in water.
