Greenburgh Considers New Policy On Leaves

GREENBURGH, NY (WCBS 880) - It's that time of year - when piles of leaves are fun for kids to jump in, but a headache for homeowners.


WCBS 880's Catherine Cioffi reports

Now, in Greenburgh, town supervisor Paul Feiner is putting the question to residents.

Should the town get rid of leaf collection and mandate composting and shredding to save money?

Valerie says it's a great idea.

"In the long run, it would probably make people do something organic with their own leaves," Valerie told WCBS 880 reporter Catherine Cioffi.

Carolyn, however, isn't buying it.

"[We're] gonna have a lot of cluttered leaves around, I suspect."

Still, Feiner says the move could save hundreds of thousands of dollars a year and it's the green thing to do.
