Grass Clippings and Leaves

The City of Juneau has received a complaint of a lot of Grass clippings and leaves in the backyards along the drainage ditch that runs along the Wild Goose State Trail. Please do not dump your grass clippings and leaves along this drainage ditch. This would be similar to blowing your grass clippings and leaves in the road and then going down the storm sewer. The drainage ditch is part of our city storm sewer. It is an ordinance in town where you can receive a ticket for blowing grass into the road and storm sewer; so if we see anymore grass clippings along this drainage ditch you could receive a citation.    Ordinance 12.08.095

If you have any questions, contact Scott Carpenter, DPW Superintendent, 920-386-3305 or cell phone 920-210-4095.    scarpenter@cityof juneau.net
