A friend of mine asked me the other day what are the pros and cons of dumping small amounts of grass clippings in a large hole at his farm... he said the hole is approx 40X20ft and 8ft deep. hes thinking of dumping a yard of grass clippings every week... he also stated he'd fill in the hole and the end of the year with soil........i know its illegal and the fines are steep!

to dispose cutt clippings....i told him to till it into his fields but he said for the time and money its not worth i would think for a farmer he would be all over
Excuse me MR. Raimaroad...Very Young? my company have been in business since 1974. Before you try to bash me get your facts straight. also your not from New Jersey so how would you know our fines and laws here?..In the last 3yrs our wonderful state has been cracking down on dumping glass clippings. They have fined local farmers that have dumped grass on there property. 1 method of this is by Infared by Helicopter. According to DEP grass clippings contaminate our soil because of all the chemicals absorbed into the blades from the use of fertilizer and insecticides. Know your facts, all i asked was a simple question, and look who shows there face....Mr. KNOWITALL
lawnsite is great isn't it bill? cnt even ask a simple question. thats the BIGGEST problem on this site
Raimaroad if you read my first post mulching the clippings back into the lawn isn't the question and its not even composting for other plants and resources. the question was What are the Pros and Cons of dumping a small amount grass clippings in a large hole? lol ...thank you pt03!
ok thank you guys!
i love the rubber ducky! lol, yes marcos you have great points. i would assume that would be great but im just assuming. i know NJ is crazy and theyll try to make a nickel off anything with fines. just trying to get every1s opinion. i see every1's point of view
