Grass Clippings

GRASS CLIPPINGS—are “NOT” collected curbside.

  • Residents who wish to dispose of grass clippings can bring them to the Department of Public Works’ Yard on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon starting mid-April through mid-October; excluding holidays.
  • Grass clippings will be accepted in biodegradable paper bags or in open barrels or cans; weighing no more than 35 pounds per can or bag.
  • No plastic bags.
As an alternative to disposing of grass clippings and yard waste, consider grasscycling or backyard composting.

A Truth about Grasscycling and Backyard Composting:  Composting will improve soil moisture, decrease erosion and recycle nutrients and organic matter FREELY back to the soil.  Grasscycling does not cause thatch build-up or spread lawn disease but increases organic matter for a healthier soil and lawn.
