[GreenYes] Re: grass clippings, and paint

Kendall - 

The website for the California Integrated Waste Management Board has an entire page of resources on "Grasscycling" - Tips, FAQa, even some academic reports.

Ken Decio at the CIWMB (copied above) might be able to point you to jurisdictions with ordinances. I know we have a lot of "leave-it-on-the-lawn" programs and there are mulching mower exchanges, etc. But I am not aware if any jurisdictions have specific policies encouraging or requiring grass-cycling. 

Try Heidi Sanborn on the paint issue (copied above). Heidi would know if anyone in CA has tried direct retailer paint exchanges.

To support NYC discussions, looking for examples of effective ?leave it on the lawn? policies/regulations/programs for grass clippings (and not just landfill bans)?.
And, curious if anyone?s experimented with (or considering) paint takeback programs with hardware and paint stores?.(and not just HHW/special waste drop-off or collection programs)?
Thanks for any info?.
