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.

Place tree twigs or hedge trimmings in with regular trash.

Together we can all keep our City Beautiful!
