Yard Waste

Leave grass clippings and leaf mulch on your lawn! 

Learn more about the Love 'em and leave 'em program. Love the beauty of leaves and grass, then leave the clippings where they fall. And consider a home composting system. Composted yard waste and food scraps can be added to your flower beds, potted plants, and gardens!
