Leaves and Pine Needles


  • Leaves and pine needles can be managed by using a mulching mower to blend them into your lawn or placing them around garden beds and trees to prevent weeds. 
  • These materials can be added to backyard compost.  An internet search of “composting” will provide more information. 
  • If your municipality offers curbside or drop-off leaf and yard waste recycling, you can participate in their program.  Contact your municipality directly to find out what materials are accepted and when their program is conducted. 
  • Leaves and pine needles can be delivered to H&H General Excavating to be turned into mulch.  Please contact them directly at 717-225-4669 regarding hours and any applicable fees. 
  • The York County Resource Recovery Center (YCRRC) Yard Waste Facility also accepts leaves and pine needles, subject to the YCRRC tipping fee, and transports them to a mulch processor.  Click here for information on the YCRRC rates and hours. 

TRASH:  Leaves and pine needles may also be placed in the regular trash.
