Press Release # 06-60, FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The New York City Department of Sanitation is reminding residents of Bronx Community Boards 9 through 12, and Brooklyn Community Boards 2, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10 and 11 (see communities listed below) to set out their fallen leaves Saturday after 4 p.m. for special collection.  Leaves should be placed in large paper leaf bags or unlined, 20 to 32 gallon containers.  The leaves will become part of the Department's successful composting program.  Free sample leaf collection paper bags were distributed door-to-door in each borough.  Additional heavy-duty paper bags can be purchased in hardware stores.  Call 3-1-1 for further information.  A second special collection for leaves in the Bronx and Brooklyn will be held the weekend of November 25th.  Leaf collections in Queens and Staten Island will occur later this month.
