The City of Santa Clarita will increase the frequency of street sweeping throughout all areas of the city beginning Monday, October 24.
Just in time for the fall season, streets will be swept on a weekly basis to help keep them clean and free of falling leaves and debris. Street sweeping will take place every week between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
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, keeping the street clear of lawn and tree trimmings, trash, and debris, and removing portable basketball courts from the streets.
“The street sweeping schedule will continue to keep our streets clean and free of leaves and debris,” said Mayor Marsha McLean.
In addition, 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.
The street sweeping will return to the monthly schedule on January 16, 2012.
