UPDATE: Point Pleasant Boro Amends Trash Collection Law

CLARIFICATION: Fresh-cut grass must be placed in a plastic garbage bag and put out with weekly trash.

Point Pleasant Boro has amended its “garbage and refuse” ordinance to regulate trash collection.

Under the new ordinance, items including cardboard, newspapers, magazines, refrigerators, televisions, computers, electronics, leaves and yard materials are not considered trash. 

CLARIFICATION: Fresh-cut grass must be placed in a plastic garbage bag and put out with weekly trash.

Residents are to follow the “Recycling Borough” code for directions on the proper disposal of those items.

So what do we with cut grass? Can you take it to the recycling center?

Only after they clarified it in the article. Initially, it didn't state that. Thanks for the ignorant feedback.

Use a mulching mower and you won't need to worry about grass clippings! If that doesn't work, put them in your compost pile- but only if it is Clopyralid free. Lastly, grass clippings have a high moisture content, so spread them out or it'll lead to anaerobic conditions and slowdown or even stop the compost process completely.
