Fall street sweeping to begin the week of Nov. 1

When anything but rain and snow melt goes down the storm drain, it can impact drainage. Improper disposal of yard waste, including leaves, has the potential to impact the water quality in Coal Creek, Rock Creek, and Waneka Lake, and cause drainage problems during a storm event. As a reminder, do not blow or rake leaves into the City's streets or gutters as this is a violation of the City's Stormwater Ordinance (Chapter 104, Article III, Section 104-34(a) (5). Grass clippings and leaves blown or swept into storm drains or into the street harm waterways and creeks, so please be sure to dispose of your materials responsibly. 

The City’s Fall Leaf Drop-Off is going on now through Nov. 24: residents may bring their bagged leaves and pumpkins to the Service Center to be composted. Residents may also call their trash hauler for other available disposal options.
