The US output of lawn clippings is approx. 40M tons annually, with maybe 10M tons used as compost etc. with the rest being sent to the landfill. This is on the order of the US wood pulp use (56M tons in 2006, less today). Pulping our lawn clippings would be far better than using our nations trees for toilet paper. The problem of all the commonly used lawn poisons going into our TP is another issue entirely.
