Lawn clippings can be a hassle to many landscapers, but an Idaho-company is collecting and reusing those troublesome pieces of grass.

Republic Services is hoping to involve 5,000 to 8,000 individuals in collecting lawn clippings, according to the Idaho Statesman.

Those participating will pay $8 a month for a 95-gallon cart for clippings with each additional cart costing about $5.

Republic Services will go and pick up the clippings and put them onto tarps to start a fermentation process.

The clippings will be added to a mixture of ingredients to feed cows.

The hope is to use the lawn clippings in a more useful setting rather than get washed away.

The Attachments Idea Book
Landscapers use a variety of attachments for doing everything from snow removal to jobsite cleanup, and regardless of how often they are used, every landscaper has a favorite attachment.
