Grass clippings can be managed by using a mulching mower to blend them into your lawn or placing them around garden beds or trees to prevent weeds. Grass can also be added to backyard compost. An internet search of “composting” will provide instructions for different composting methods and what materials are compostable.
Grass clippings are not accepted at the York County Resource Recovery Center’s Yard Waste Facility or York County mulch processing facilities. This material can be disposed of in your regular trash or brought to the York County Resource Recovery Center (YCRRC) as trash. Click here for information about YCRRC rates and hours.
