Every public street within the city is swept at least once a month during the months of February through October. In Leaf Drop season, each street is swept twice a month. The Leaf Drop schedule runs from November through January.The extra sweeps help to keep the streets cleaner during the leaf-drop season, keeping gutters and drains flowing smoothly.
We appreciate your help in keeping Citrus Heights streets clean and free of litter and debris!
Dos & Don'ts
Here are a few tips to help get the most from our street sweeping work:
DON'T rake leaves into piles in the street - piles can clog gutters and drains, and may result in flooding during heavy rains. (Piles also become road hazards and cannot be swept by the street sweeper.)
DO - use your green waste or composting containers for leaf recycling.
DO - keep lawns, driveways, streets and sidewalks clear of leaves.
DO - keep trees and shrubs trimmed so that they do not obstruct the sweeper.
DO - keep basketball hoops out of the street and gutters.
