Grass Clippings are no longer acceptable at the landfills – please compost or mulch grass clippings on your lawn. Do not blow grass clippings in the street – they accumulate into the catch basins and clog them up creating drainage problems. The City of Groton cannot take grass clippings with the leaf pickup or trash collection.
