A growing trend

Is New Rochelle the only community in Westchester with this policy?
Not at all. 16 communities in Westchester- representing 59% of Westchester’s population- do not pick up loose piles of leaves at curbside, and many more are considering a change.

What should I tell my landscaper?

Inform your landscaper of the new policy change and review with them the options that are best for your property. If your landscaper is not familiar with mulch mowing, encourage them to come to one of the City’s mulching demos this fall where they can learn more about the practice from a local expert. In the meantime, you can view a mulch mowing demonstration here.
