Improper Disposal of Yard Waste

Just a reminder, improper disposal of grass clippings or other vegetative debris into the road can result in many problems. When it rains, grass clippings and other vegetative debris are washed down our storm drains and into our storm water collection system.  If this material does not clog up the system, it often ends up in ditches, creeks, and ultimately Lake Erie where they decay.  The decaying process consumes oxygen while releasing nutrients which can lead to algal blooms. The City’s waste collector, Waste Management, allows for yard waste to be collected with the normal weekly garbage collection. Each bag must not exceed 40 pounds.   grassinstreet
