Grasscycling is not feasible in every situation. Prolonged wet weather, mechanical breakdown of mowers, or infrequent mowing are situations where grass clippings should probably be bagged since an excessive volume of clippings may be generated. But do not throw the clippings away!
Grass clippings are an excellent addition to a backyard compost pile. Clippings can also be used as mulch to provide weed control and prevent moisture loss around flowerbeds, trees, and shrubs. Mulching with grass clippings should be avoided if they are of an "invasive" variety, such as Bermuda grass, or if herbicides have been applied recently to the lawn.
Grass clippings are not collected at the curb. Residents are encouraged to grasscycle instead. Residents that still wish to dispose of their grass clippings may do so, free of charge, at any of the Niagara Region's Drop-Off Depots or Walker Environmental Residential Waste and Recycling Drop-Off Depot.
Residents may drop off their grass clippings for composting, free of charge, at any of the or Walker Industries Drop-Off Depot.
