Isn't it nice for all those folks to rake and bag leaves for you? I have never seen these paper bags. Will they compost like regular paper?I've never bought these bags, but I do have quite a collection from going around neighborhoods and collecting bagged leaves for my yard. They are very durable, much more so than you'd expect from paper bags.
@Chuck, Several years ago City Hall offered the people the advantage of taking their leaves which had been placed in paper leaf bags. The bags do decompose.Isn't it nice for all those folks to rake and bag leaves for you? I have never seen these paper bags. Will they compost like regular paper?
How big are these bags? And are they cheaper than black plastic bags? I have about 1,764,501 beer cans that I need to take to the metal yard and sell. I suppose they can be reused?Yes, those bags do decompose, but it takes a long time (not saying that's a bad thing). They don't just fall apart when wet -- very tough.
I don't know which is cheaper, between paper and plastic bags, since I get both by picking up yard waste from around my neighborhood -- I'll never need to buy bags againHow big are these bags?

They should be removed from public footpaths, when it gets frosty they turn very slippery.I will never understand why folks insist on raking and getting rid of leaves. It makes zero sense both economically and enviornmentally
When the paper leaf bags were first introduced here, we learned that even a partially filled bag could easily tear if it was left out in the rain.
I'm sure Chuck would agree with that, he was simply saying it was a waste to buy bags to send them away, rather it's better to just pile them up and run over them with a lawn mower and they will feed your lawn. I do collect them bags and put the leaves all over my yard and they do wonders to build up my extremely sandy soil.They should be removed from public footpaths, when it gets frosty they turn very slippery.
I don't get leaves in my garden and I've been collecting them from the road up the road for my hedgehog houses that I've built at the back of my back garden.
They don't get collected by the council they just leave them in the gutter to pile up and block the drains.
The paper leaf bags may not have come from Lowes or Home Depot.The bags around here don't tear when wet. I'm not sure what type you've seen tear, but the ones I've seen are super durable, usually the Lowes/Home Depot brand similar to the below
