Grass clippings are not accepted in clear bag garbage or yard material curbside. Feed your lawn with them instead! Here are some helpful tips:

  • Raise the wheels of your mower to make grass clippings shorter. This means no bagging or raking!
  • Attach a mulching blade to your lawnmower.
  • Spreading grass clippings evenly over the lawn creates a natural fertilizer and keeps the weeds away!
  • Add grass clippings to a backyard composter to create your own mulch.
  • If necessary, take your grass clippings to the Bloomington Compost Site.
