Thank you for your interest! We have reached our maximum for this year! Please remember that this is a pilot program. Next year, we hope to expand this service to other areas!

Don’t spend your Veteran’s Day outside raking leaves…LEAF IT TO US! The Compost Education program of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County is taking reservations to rake, bag and remove the leaves from your lawn this Veteran’s Day weekend for a suggested donation of $1.00 per bag. If you live within the City of Ithaca in the following neighborhoods, Fall Creek / Northside neighborhoods, Belle Sherman / Collegetown, South Hill, our volunteers will bring their own rakes and bags to your home and you can just relax while knowing that your donation will support CCE programs.

If you want to do it yourself, The City of Ithaca is charging $1.50 per biodegradable bag of leaves for curbside collection or visit www.ccetompkins.org/compost to learn how to compost those leaves at home.

    Is the Town of Ithaca included in this? That is where I live.

      The Town of Ithaca is not included. This is a first year program, which we hope to expand in the future.
