Question about Lutron Electrical Supplies
Replacing Thyrocon SDP600 single pole dimmer with Lutron single pole that has ground wire
Switches should be grounded to protect you if you have wet hands or a plumbing leak. There has to be a ground wire in the wall plate box somewhere as the box itself is grounded. The should be a screw terminal inside the box. You switch ground goes to it.
As Brad says, capping off a ground wire on any item is against building code.
You can see the Ground connection on the bottom right in the image that I have linked to.

You could do that but it would not be up to the electrical code requirements. Take the old one out and remove the wire nuts and put the new one in. There should be a ground wire stuffed in the box somewhere. Unless the house is really old. You connect the ground wire to the bare ones in the box.
