I must use my bin to get rid of leaves that fall from street trees and my neighbour's garden. They aren't off my trees, so why should I have to get rid of them?

Question:
I must use my bin to get rid of leaves that fall from street trees and my neighbour’s garden. They aren’t off my trees, so why should I have to get rid of them?
Answer:

If leaves from a nearby tree fall into your garden it’s classed as a natural event and it’s down to you to dispose of them. Legally you can’t require the owner of the tree to dispose of them.

However, if you choose to cut off any tree branches or vegetation overhanging your property you should return what you remove to your neighbour or whoever owns the trees. That includes branches and fruit. You should not dispose of them yourself.
