During the fall and winter seasons, the City of Santa Clarita will increase the frequency of street sweeping throughout all areas of the City beginning Monday, October 14, 2013. Street sweeping will take place every week following trash pickup days between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to help keep streets and particularly gutters clean and free of falling leaves and debris.
Residents are asked to do their part to increase the effectiveness of the City wide street sweeping by removing vehicles from the street during scheduled street sweeping days. Residents are also encouraged to keep the street clear of lawn and tree trimmings, trash, and debris, and remove portable basketball courts from the streets.
“As the colder months approach, the City strives to keep roads clean and free of leaves and debris by increasing the street sweeping schedule throughout the community,” said Mayor Bob Kellar.
Additionally, it is important that residents do not pile or stack leaves in the street or in yards. All leafy debris should be placed in the green waste container supplied by the trash service provider. This is to ensure that the street sweeping equipment does not become plugged, which would result in delays in the street sweeping service.
Street sweeping will return to the monthly schedule on February 3, 2014. For more information, go to Santa-Clarita.com and click on the street sweeping map for the scheduled daily sweeping routes or call the City’s Environmental Services Division at (661) 286-4098.
