 Yard waste - Grass clippings


Leave grass clippings on your lawn after you mow; or

Put grass clippings in your green cart for composting.

  • You can either put grass clippings in loose; or
  • Use a paper yard waste bag if you don't want clippings sticking to the cart.

Special instructions

If your green cart is full:

  • Put excess grass clippings in paper yard waste bags.
  • Bags have a 20 kg weight limit.
  • If you can lift the bag with one hand, it should be ok.

Set bags at least 30 cm (one foot) to the side of your green cart. Do not lean bags against the cart or on top of the cart lid.
