After a crew has been in your neighborhood to remove the piles of tree branches and limbs, a pile of leaves and smaller sticks will likely remain in the terrace area. Residents will need to be responsible for cleaning up what remains, which can be placed in a compost bag for a later date. The leaves and sticks should not be raked or moved into the street. This violates City Ordinance 71.086 which says the following:
§ 71.086 DEBRIS OR INJURIOUS MATERIAL; REMOVAL; CLEAN-UP.
(A) A person shall not throw or deposit upon a highway any glass bottle, glass, nails, tacks, wire, cans, trash, garbage, rubbish, litter, offal, grass, leaves, lawn clippings or any other debris. A person shall not throw or deposit upon a highway a substance likely to injure any person, animal or vehicle upon the highway.
(B) Any person who drops or permits to be dropped or thrown upon any highway any destructive or injurious material and other material, as defined in division (A) above, shall immediately remove the material or cause it to be removed.
Please help keep our streets and storm sewers free and clear of leaves!
