REMINDER: Grass clippings on the road are a Quality of Life Ordinance violation. Grass clippings are dangerous to motorcycle riders and cyclists and they clog storm drains. You will get a ticket for a Quality of Life violation if grass clippings are in the road at your property. If you have a landscaping company mowing your lawn for you, the property owner will be receiving the ticket. For more information, please reference Chapter 42 of the Borough of Northumberland Code Book.
