With the grass growing…like weeds…we’re in mega-mowing season in North Texas. No matter what city you live in, it’s not okay to dispose of grass clippings in your garbage or recycling carts. Our Environmental Waste Services division recommends putting leaves, plant materials and grass in paper lawn bags. Place these bags out with your yard trimmings for collections.

Never place leaves or grass clippings in a recycling cart. Learn more about weekly yard trimming Dos and Don'ts.
