Lawn clippings – are they good for the council gardens?

The Moreton Bay Regional Council does not encourage lawn clipping to be added to the community gardens.  They can actually fine you for dumping your lawn clippings in these gardens.   Lawn clippings often carry weed seeds with them which only makes the job of the garden maintenance crew more difficult and a constant source of frustration for them.    They also do not breakdown quickly when left in a pile.

Please do not dispose of your lawn clippings in community gardens.   It is your responsibility to dispose of your clippings in a responsible manner and if you wish to put them on a garden, please put them on your own gardens.
