    Anyone know what the correct process is here for getting rid of fallen leaves?

    Not supposed to burn them (previous thread here).

    The trash collectors have now started cutting open sacks left for collection and are leaving any with leaves inside.

    Composting is an option, I suppose, but does not feel like something that's common here.

    Also, who's responsibility is it to clear a neighbour's fallen leaves that fall onto a shared right of way?

    WOW, of all of the things here to think of, leaves are the farthest thing from my mind. The wind blows them away or they just decompose. The only time I thought of them was when they were in the fairways, I don't play golf anymore, so not worried about leaves.

    I was having a cold one in a beach resort, when a maintenance guy sweeping leaves off the beach thought to myself good man. Then I was astonished what happened next! He dug a hole in the sand and buried the leaves. Well the thought was there.

    WOW, two hours ago, our garbage people (Pulantubig) left our bag of leaves, first time it's happened, and when i ran out and asked him why, he said new law. I even had a paid-for green tag on the bag...
    WTF, can't burn ??
    Bury ??, when the house goes to a meter from the lot line....
    What brainless bureaucrat came up with this genius ??? Unbelievable...
    Somebody tell me where Felipe lives, and i'll dump it outside his fence...
    Do i detect a SEVERE LACK of planning on the part of the city gummint ??. Is this part of the "land fill" problem that the idiots on Sta Catalina St have been ignoring for a decade??. Brilliant, f* brilliant...

    He may actually be a very clever man. :smile:

    Adding organic matter to sand produces loam - the best growing medium for most plants. So maybe soon you will see him plant a coconut in the same spot.

    Or not.

    Composting is best, if you have space - wire netting around 4 corner posts will do. But mix with other organic matter - grass cuttings, kitchen peelings (not cooked food to avoid rats visiting) and even shredded paper (not inked). Then turn a few times.

    It's in front of a well know beach resort, I don't think the owner is going to be happy.
    Probably Grumpy, that leaves 5 more. Pun intended.

    You know this one?:

    A panda bear walks into a bar and orders a sandwich. The waiter brings him the sandwich. The panda bear eats it, pulls out a pistol, kills the waiter, and gets up and starts to walk out.

    The bartender yells for him to stop. The panda bear asks, “What do you want?” The bartender replies, “First you come in here, order food, kill my waiter, then try to go without paying for your food.”

    The panda bear turns around and says, “Hey! I’m a Panda. Look it up!” The bartender goes into the back room and looks up panda bear in the encyclopedia, which read: “Panda: a bear-like marsupial originating in Asian regions. Known largely for it’s stark black and white coloring. Eats shoots and leaves.”
