ALL ITEMS MUST BE PLACED AT THE CURB IN
GRASS CLIPPINGS WILL NOT
be collected by the Borough and SHALL NOT be placed at the curb at any time. The Borough encourages you to participate in the Grass – Cut it and Leave it Program. By doing this you will:
- Save time – You don’t have to empty your mower’s bag, no raking, no bagging, and no taking clippings to the street.
- Use less water – lawn clippings contain water and leaving those clippings on the lawn retains moisture, therefore you water less, or not at all.
- Use less fertilizer – lawn clippings contain nutrients. Leaving them on the lawn fertilizes your lawn, therefore you use less fertilizer or none at all.
We advise that you mow High! 2.5” – 3.5” is ideal for NJ. It saves moisture and shades out weeds.
