Blowing grass and other yard waste onto local roadways can lead to other problems too! Rocks and stones thrown from mowers, for instance, have the potenital to injure others and damage nearby vehicles. Grass and organic waste can also build up on road surfaces and block storm sewers, which may reduce local drainage capacity.
To help keep roads safe and avoid the additional problems associated with blown grass and leaves, residents and property owners are asked to ensure their lawnmowever discharge chutes are aimed away from roads and sidewalks. If chutes can't be aimed away, they can consider the use of a mulching bag. Blowers and brooms can also be used to clear the surface of roadways after mowing and trimming.
Thanks for everyone's cooperation!
