Are you overwhelmed with lawn care and maintenance this summer? What are you planning on doing with all those grass clippings, branches, huge piles of leaves, and other yard waste? Keep one thing in mind when disposing of your yard waste; never dump wastes at the curb, into the storm drain in the street or on the banks of a nearby stream! Yard waste can clog the storm sewer system, leading to stormwater backups or flooding. Anything in a storm sewer or stream will wash directly to Lake Erie, untreated! Blow grass clippings off the roadway, sidewalk and driveway and back onto the lawn. Try composting, using a mulching mower, or using your neighborhood yard waste collection dates. For more information, contact the Willoughby Service Department at 953-4111 or the Lake County Stormwater Management Department at 350-5900 or www.lakecountyohio.gov/smd and find us on social media.
