Updated Ordinance Regarding Grass Clippings and Yard Waste

South Jacksonville, September 13th, 2021 — At the September 7th Special Session, the South Jacksonville Board of Trustees passed Ordinance updates to include grass clippings and yard waste (e.g., leaves) as prohibited items to put in the streets (§90.04) and highways (§90.05). Public Works Superintendent John Green said the changes will help keep grass clippings and yard waste like mulched leaves out of the village storm sewers as well as preventing grass clippings and yard waste from causing a safety hazard for anyone on a motorcycle.
