Beginning Monday, Oct. 15, the city of Santa Clarita will increase the frequency of street sweeping throughout all areas of the City. This change is made each fall and winter to remove leaves and other debris from gutters. Street sweeping will take place every week, following trash pickup days, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
Residents are asked to remove vehicles from the street during sweeping days to allow for a thorough operation. Residents are also encouraged to keep the street clear of lawn clippings and tree trimmings, such as branches, as sweepers will be unable to remove these. It is also necessary to move portable basketball hoops from the street during sweeping.
Additionally, it is important to not pile or stack leaves in the street or in yards. While the sweeper is there to clear dirt and debris that collects naturally in the streets, piles of green waste left in front of a home can cause damage to the equipment.
All leafy debris should be placed in a green waste container, which can be supplied by a resident’s trash service provider. This is to ensure that the street sweeper does not become plugged, which would result in delays in the street sweeping schedule.
Street sweeping will return to its monthly schedule on February 4, 2019.
