Instead of bagging up all those pretty fall leaves and stacking them out at the curb, turn them into compost, and save energy and landfill space.

Why throw away good soil food?

Micheal,
Excellant question.
It's mindboggling how utterly wasteful millions of (U.S.) americans are in rejecting Nature's food.
The same people who stupidly toss away leaves (wasteful) are the same ones who'll spend gobs of money on industrial fertilizers - via purchases of bags of fertilizers or a professional lawn service - for their "precious" lawns.

Myself, I use my trusty Neuton Cordless Electric Mower w/ mulcher attachment which produces ROTFLOL the same effect cheaply!

Recent research has suggested than chemical nitrogenous fertilisers kill the soil bacteria that makes nitrogen etc..

So by applying fertiliser you are killing any chance of "free' fertilsier and have to keep buying the artificial stuff

Anything once organic can go to feed the soil micro-fauns- flora.
