I used to get bags of grass clippings from my non-organic neighbors and compost them into usable material. When fall comes you will see bags and bags of leaves that people are throwing away. I stop and ask if I can take them. I get some looks
but never a no, but they think I'm crazy even when I explain what I'm doing. I get a heck of a lot of compost for my efforts!
The only reservation I would have regarding this, is the introduction of chemicals they might have used into your organic ecosystem. I guess that leaves are less likely, but grass could be a major concern. However, if they are using the chemicals on their lawns, the trees are also absorbing this, and it will be in the leaves.
Just a thought, I don't know how critical this is......
