SUMPTER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) — It’s the time of year where yard work becomes a tall task on almost everyone’s list.

But have you ever thought about how the clean up process - or lack there of - could be dangerous, if not done properly?

Well, a metro Detroiter, focused on the safety of others, made a big move to help make a difference. And now it's a misdemeanor to blow your yard clippings into the street.

Sometimes it only takes one person with an experience or an idea to make a change that could benefit everyone.
