This report describes a series of trials the Environment Agency undertook with local authorities to sample and analyse batches of seasonal street leaf sweepings in 2012 and 2013. The aim of these trials was to try and identify generic circumstances whereby seasonal street leaf sweepings could be collected and composted without compromising compost quality and safety.
