The leaves on the lawn in my yard don’t satisfy my leaf craving, so I go trolling the curb for bags and bags of my neighbors’ leaves, too. I’m sure I raise some eyebrows, like when I raid their cardboard on recycle day, but I can’t help it.
I could (and do) put them as is in the compost heap, but I really prefer them mulched. They decompose faster and easier when they’ve been pulverized.
Here are the two big bags from the top picture, emptied out:

This is more than the two bags. More like 8 or 10.
It can go on the compost pile to layer with greens for awesome compost or use it as mulch.
