Sweeping Guidelines for Residents and Businesses

  • Residents are asked to move vehicles and trailers off city streets before the sweepers are in their area.
  • Residents and businesses are reminded not to rake or blow leaves or grass into the street.
  • Grass clippings plug our storm water system; please keep grass clippings out of the gutter line and street. Adopt an Inlet.
  • Residents may take grass/leaves to the yard waste sites or place the bags out for garbage collection. Businesses should take grass/leaves to the landfill during regular business hours
  • Do not rake the sand from your boulevard into the street. Please rake the sand into a box and set it out for garbage collection or take it to the landfill during regular business hours.

Street Sweeping Tips

  • Street sweeping operations can be dangerous.
  • Parents are advised to keep children away from all street sweeping operations.
