The Washington State University Lewis County Master Recycler Composter volunteers have scheduled two leaf exchange events this month to allow people who don’t want their fall leaves to pass them on to someone who does. 

The events will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Nov. 9 and 23 at the Lewis County Central Solid Waste Transfer Station at 1411 S. Tower Avenue. 

“Bag up your fall leaves and give them to gardeners who would love to use them for compost or mulch,” said Melanie Case, recycling program coordinator for the Utility, which operates the transfer station, in a news release. “Leaves must be from healthy trees. Volunteers will also not be set up to accept grass clippings, other yard debris or garbage. They will be inspecting bags before accepting them.”

Participants should bring their leaves in plastic lawn and leaf bags or garbage bags. The event is free but volunteers will accept donations to support their educational programs.
