The sweeping of city streets has begun. This effort takes between two and three weeks to complete, weather permitting. Sweeping streets ensures safe modes of transportation and clean roadways that ultimately aid in improving air and storm water quality.
Residents can assist by keeping the curb adjacent to their property clear of leaves and other materials that may clog the storm sewer drains. Backyard composting and the Ramsey County Yard Waste site are both great options for disposing of fallen leaves. The Yard Waste Collection site located at 3530 Hudson Avenue (photo ID required). The site is free of charge. Visit https://www.ramseycounty.us/residents/recycling-waste/collection-sites/yard-waste for days and hours of operation.
