Stormwater Tip of the Month
With the arrival of fall, falling leaves and grass clippings left in the streets can cause stormwater pollution. To help prevent this pollution, clean up all leaves and grass from the streets and storms drains along your property. The waste from their decomposition can eventually get into the storm drains, making their way into the streams and rivers where they can rob aquatic life of oxygen.
Leaf Collection Begins
With the arrival of Fall, the street sweeping machines have been replaced with the leaf collection machines. The machines follow the same routes/times as street sweeping until the end of the year. Do not place tree branches and or twigs in with the leaves because this clogs up the vacuum unit. Leaves can also be bagged and placed out in with your regular trash trash collection.
