Violation - Leaf Pile in Street

Don't Fall Down on the Job

It's leaf season and this is a reminder to please make sure you follow the leaf collection Do's and Dont's. Failure to comply with the important rules could earn you a summons, even if your landscaper is the one that committed the violation. The most common violation is piling leaves on the street pavement, constituting a public safety hazard. If you're not mulch mowing, please be mindful and properly place your leaves for pick-up. Following all of the rules helps to increase the efficiency of our leaf pick-up while also contributing to community safety.
