What about sweeping up leaves?
During the winter months the focus of the City’s street sweeping efforts is leaf removal to help keep drains clear. To better assist sweepers, do not rake, blow or pile up leaves in the street. The sweeper cannot pick up large loads and debris will be left for you to remove. Please place leaves from your trees out for collection under the yard waste program, which you receive as part of your solid waste collection. Street sweeping is intended to clean what naturally present on the street. Too often, residents or their gardeners will blow all of the grass cuttings, leaves and small branches from pruning in the street.
