Dangers of grass clippings on streets

Public works officials in Door and Kewanee County remind property owners to be mindful of maintaining their yards this summer. Lawns should be cut regularly, and grass clippings should not be blown or left on roadways. Severe injuries to bicyclists or motorcycle drivers can result from grass clippings on streets. Algoma Public Works Director Matt Murphy explains the maximum length of grass allowed and the other issues associated with blowing grass clippings on the road.

 

 

Murphy adds that grass clippings can make street surfaces dangerously slick, causing bikes to fishtail.    Individuals can be charged with a misdemeanor if they fail to comply with yard waste and maintenance laws.
