    I own a business in a strip shopping center & someone dumped a big pile of these near my dumpster. I thought maybe cana at first, then I found these little leaves. Any help at all would be great.

    Yup, sure looks like Yucca (species Yucca, not Casava aka Yuca.) It's edible if you peel and boil it, but better to plant it and enjoy the little pachycaul tree!
