Tentative Street Sweeping Schedule
With the seasons changing, leaves are falling. Please don't sweep or rake leaves into the streets because they impede drainage, and clog storm drains. Street sweeping helps to keep Decatur clean as well as preventing debris and contamination from entering our storm drains, which flow directly into local waterways.
Streets are swept once a month during the Fall/Winter Season.
This schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather conditions and or equipment maintenance.
To help us provide the best service, here are some friendly reminders:
* Removal of any vehicle or trailers parked on the street - The street sweepers often have to go around parked cars in residential areas, missing vital portions of curb/gutter and leaving unsightly debris that can reduce the flow of water into the storm drain system.
* No garbage cans, yard waste and any other in the street during sweep day – Garbage cans and yard waste cannot be placed in the street more than 24 hours before pick-up, and should be retrieved in the evening after pick-up.
* Please do not rake or blow your leaves into the street. Residents who rake leaves and other yard debris into the street make it difficult for crews to complete their appointed routes in a timely fashion. Please recycle leaves and other green waste material by placing them in compostable yard waste bags. Green waste can include yard trimmings, grass clippings, leaves, weeds, brush and tree clippings.
* Please remember that raking leaves into the street is considered illegal dumping.
We appreciate the help.
