Residents Reminded to Keep Grass Clippings Out of Street

Residents and landscapers are reminded to keep grass clippings out of the street and the City’s storm drains.  Blowing grass and other yard debris into the sidewalk, street, or storm drainage system is a violation of the City’s littering and stormwater ordinances.

Grass clippings, leaves, and other lawn debris can clog storm drains, resulting in street and private property flooding.  Also, storm drains flow directly to local waterways untreated.  Grass clippings add unnecessary nutrients, which help feed harmful algal blooms.  In addition to environmental harm, you may be creating a safety hazard.  When blown into the street, clippings can create a slippery and dangerous surface for traveling motorcyclists and bicyclists.
