AA becomes newest drop off site for Hope Grass Project

Bring your lawn cuttings to us to help feed needy animals

The Automobile Association (AA) has partnered with AgriSA to become the newest drop-off site for the Hope Grass Project.

This project collects lawn cuttings from homes, plots, and businesses, and puts it to good use. Once dried, the lawn cuttings are collected by AgriSA who then process the cuttings into grass pellets for cattle and sheep.

We are offering our premises in Kyalami as a drop-off site and will manage the grass coming in to ensure it is suitable to be donated. We know the drought in South Africa is having a devastating impact on farmers across the country and will have an adverse knock-on effect on the economy. This is our small way of helping. We urge all people in the Midrand area to bring their lawn cuttings to us and we will pass it on to AgriSA, the AA said.

The drop-off site for the lawn cuttings is the AAs head office in Kyalami at Denis Paxton House, 4 Hyperion Road, Barbeque Downs.  For a map to our offices, and for an important list of dos and donts for handling your grass before dropping it off, please visit https://www.aa.co.za/content/Hope_grass.pdf

Our drop-off site will be open from Monday to Friday between 8am and 4pm. For more information regarding the drop-off site, please contact Layton Beard on 082 452 7527.
