Town Deliveries[]

Public Works will deliver collected leaves to the community garden on a as needed basis with the following stipulations:

  1. Public Works will deliver leaves 1 truck load at a time, all leaves need to be used before we will deliver more.
  2. The availability of composted leaves is a service that The Town of Carrboro provides to its residents.
    1. With this in mind, the Public Works Department will determine the amount of leaves that we can offer for use in the garden.
  3. Delivery of leaves is not a service that we offer our residents. Therefore, delivering leaves to the garden may causes difficulties with our residents.

If this occurs, the Town reserves the right to discontinue deliveries. In this case the composted leaves at Public Works will still be available for use in the garden.

They will have to be loaded and delivered to the garden by community garden participants.
