We deliver leaves to some fields and to a company that will turn the leaves into mulch. Grass holds moisture that creates mold and heat. The mulch company cannot have mold in the mulch and the heat generated can cause a fire.
In addition, please do not dispose of grass clippings near or within watercourses. This is consider a violation of the following Township Ordinance. Please dispose of grass clippings properly.

- Every person owning property through which a watercourse passes, or such person’s lessee, shall keep and maintain that part of the watercourse within the property free of trash, debris, excessive vegetation, and other obstacles that would pollute, contaminate, or significantly retard the flow of water through the watercourse.
