How can yard waste cause problems?
In the autumn, the leaves fall from the trees. In the summer, there are grass clippings from mowing the law. In spring, weeding the garden produces a lot of yard waste. In the winter, ice storms bring down tree limbs.
Do you know what to do with this yard waste?
There are many ways to dispose of yard waste but dumping it down storm drains or in creeks is never an option.
When leaves and grass clippings are left to collect in storm drains or piled on stream banks, yard waste can clog the storm water drainage system and cause floods or harm aquatic life.
