JOPLIN, MO.--- As we fall into autumn, Joplin city leaders have several options of where to dispose of your leaves. Residents can drop off their leaves and grass clippings at the Joplin Compost Facility on Eddy Lane. If you have a compost bin, leaves may be left in the backyard. Homeowners can also set out bagged leaves for regular weekly trash service or purchase a burn permit from the fire department or the finance department. There is a curbside leaf pick up program, but it will not begin until December 2nd.
