LEAVES TO MULCH - Mike Scanlon of Buffalo donates his leaves to a recycling program that will benefit Grassroots Gardens of Buffalo. This year, the City of Buffalo and Larden Construction, Inc. are participating in this cost-reducing program that will turn leaves and yard debris in mulch. The mulch will then be donated to Grassroots Gardens, one of which is located on the West Side. Leaf collections begin Nov. 14, will go until Nov. 25 and are scheduled for the same days as garbage pickup. Residents also have the option of donating their leaves at a drop off site. The drop off sites include:
• Cazenovia Park golf course parking lot: south of Seneca Street at the foot of Wildwood Avenue • Shoshone Park parking lot: north off of Hertel Avenue at the foot of Beard Avenue • 1120 Seneca St.: parking lot between Babcock and Smith streets. Photo by Kaitlin Fritz and Kaitlin Riznyk
