Dear List Members -

I am looking for any available information regarding average grass
clippings generation rates, such as number of pounds per 'X' square
feet, per average residential lot, etc., over a growing season. I am
interested in data from throughout North America.

I would also like to find out about current management practices for
grass clippings (e.g., collected at curbside, banned from collection, etc.)
and estimated costs (per household, per ton) for whatever type of
program or service is offered.
