The best way to recycle grass clippings is the easiest – leave them on the lawn. A properly mowed lawn will not result in residue buildup. The secrets:
- Cut the grass when it is dry.
- Cut it when it gets 3 to 4 inches tall.
- Set the mower to cut at 2 inches.
- Keep the mower blade sharp, and use a mulching mower if possible.
Additionally, Go Green Wilmette has provided the Village with a guide for green lawn care.
And remember that leaf blowers may only be used for lawn care from October 1st to May 14th. For more information, click here for the Code Enforcement page.
