 Yard waste - Grass clippings


​Leave it on the lawn

Leave your clippings on the lawn after you mow. Clippings will quickly decompose and return valuable nutrients and moisture to the soil. Learn more about grasscycling.

Compost it - Green Cart

Residents can compost grass clippings in their green cart. Grass clippings can be put loose inside the green cart.

Tip: If you find the clippings stick inside the cart, you can also put them in a paper yard waste bag first and then place the bag inside the cart.

If your green cart is full, extra grass clippings can be put in paper yard waste bags and set at least 30 cm (1ft) to the side of your green cart for collection. Do not lean bags against the cart or on top of the cart lid. Extra bags must weigh less than 20 kg (45 lbs).
