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!

I know some guys who got into big trouble in the mid 90's for something similar. They were using a tub grinder to grind various yard waste from grass clippings to entire trees and dumping it into a hole on a local farm. Someone reported them to the state environmental people and they were given 14 days to clean it all up or face huge fines. I don't know the specifics of why it was illegal, but it was definitely illegal.
