Please Dispose of Leaves In Green Waste Can
Too Many Leaves in Street Block Street Sweeper, Clog Drains
Posted Date: 12/19/2017

The City of Pittsburg’s Public Works Department is asking residents to please avoid sweeping large piles of leaves from your yard into the street or into storm drain catch basins. When this happens, the street sweeper is unable to handle these large piles and is forced to go around them. Leaves can also clog drains and catch basins, causing flooding.

The City’s street sweeping program was never intended to dispose of leaves. Please dispose of these leaves in your green waste can.
