Help Keep Leaves out of Storm Drains

Keep storm drains clear and prevent localized flooding by managing the leaves on your property. Rake the leaves in your yard, gutters and sidewalks and place the leaves in your green waste container. Piled leaves on the street can make street sweeping difficult, and can clog street sweeping trucks. Remember that residential households can have up to two green waste (and two recycle) carts with their basic trash rate. You can also include yard waste in your next bulky waste cleanup collection. Leaves and other smaller items should be bagged. To schedule a bulky waste cleanup or to order a second green waste cart, call 916-355-8367 or visit the City’s website.
