fallen leaves on the ground

Leaf season is upon us, and the City of Salinas Environmental and Maintenance Services Department needs your help. Each year the heavy leaf fall that occurs from October through February presents a number of problems for the Street Sweeping Program. 

Please help out your community by not raking leaves or landscape debris into the street and containing all the leaves, grass clippings, and tree branches from your lawn and landscape into the proper Yard-Waste bin.

Following these simple suggestions will help the City's Street Sweepers more effectively sweep the leaves that naturally fall into the street. It also helps to minimize the possibility of street flooding during typical fall and early winter rain.
