Mowing grass and allowing them to settle on to public roadways in the state of North Carolina
Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for your reply.The NC littering law prohibits discharge of anything onto public land. See: NC General Statute 14-399. Even though grass may be biodegradeable, it can clog drains and prevent drainage on roadways. So discharging (not accidental blowing) grass onto the public road intentionally can be considered littering if the local law enforcement agency wants to actually enforce it.
