Got grass clippings?


It is summertime in Marshfield, and the need to maintain and mow the yard comes with that. While that is a straightforward task, another issue emerges when figuring out what to do with all the grass and leaves. But, for Marshfield residents, there is a solution.

The Marshfield Leaf Drop Site opened for the season on April 1 at 3800 N. Marshall Road. "This site provides a place for citizens of Marshfield to dispose of their yard waste if they decide to collect them," tells Marshfield City Administrator Sam Rost.

The dumpsite is open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. "City staff is present on-site during hours of operation to monitor drop-off materials and to verify residency," adds Rost. When citizens arrive at the site, they must show proof of residence. The proof can be in the form of an ID or even a water bill.

As a reminder, residents can only bring grass clippings, leaves, and straw. Items like tree limbs, trash, vines, or brush are prohibited. "The City staff does not aid in unloading materials but is on-site to point you in the right direction." Rost explained, "If you are a resident of Marshfield and looking for a place to dispose of your grass clipping and leaves, please see us on Saturdays, and we will be happy to provide a place for you to do so."
