A reminder to clean your clippings

COLUMBIA – With frequent afternoon rain showers during recent days, grass is growing faster and lawn mowing is occurring more often. This prompts Town of Columbia officials to remind residents that grass clippings should not be left on town streets.

Grass clippings that end up on the streets eventually end up in storm drains. This clogs drains resulting in sluggish removal of water from yards and streets.

Residents are asked to rake and bag clippings which will be picked up on Wednesdays and Fridays. Bags of clippings should be left at the curb side for pick up. Residents are encouraged to pass this information on to their lawn care contractors.
