    Where to Drop Off Bagged Leaves in Philly – 2018

    Although we’ve already had snow in Philly, there’s still leaves around!

    The 2018 Philadelphia Bagged Leaf Recycling Program is back. Below are the tips and where to drop off your leaves.

    Philadelphia 2018 Leaf Recycling Drive Tips

    • Bagged leaves will only be accepted in biodegradable paper bags.  These bags can be processed for recycling along with the leaves. This reduces contamination in the recycling process.
    • Do not mix trash or other recyclable materials with bagged leaves. This contaminates leaves and makes them unfit for recycling purposes.
    • Use as many bags as needed, maximum 40 lbs. each.
    • Bags may be purchased at most hardware stores. Bags are not provided by the Streets Department.
    • Bagged leaves may also be taken to any of the Sanitation Convenience Centers:
    • 3033 S. 63rd Street (63rd & Passyunk Ave.)
    • Domino Lane and Umbria Street
    • State Road and Ashburner Street
    • 2601 W. Glenwood Avenue
    • Delaware Avenue & Wheatsheaf Lane
    • Leaves set out curbside, either in bags or containers, will be collected as trash, not recycling.
