ADVISORY: Blowing Grass Clippings or Leaves into the Road is Illegal

Posted on April 26, 2024

As the growing months are upon us once more, please note that it is illegal to blow yard waste into the road.  Not only does it potentially damage any passing vehicles, but such waste clogs storm drains and can cause slippery road conditions when wet.  Please blow any grass clippings back into your yard when mowing your lawn.  This is especially valuable if you have a mulching lawn mower as it doesn’t just keep you on the right side of the law, it also restores vital nutrients to your lawn as the clippings decompose.

Township Ordinance Chapters 278 and Chapter 296 Regarding Grass Clippings & Other Yard Waste
