Fall Leaves are Everywhere!
Posted By bshelton on November 24, 2021
We would like to remind all residents not to put piles of leaves in the street, but instead use your Organics Cart to dispose of the leaf piles. Leaf piles can cause street flooding and create hazardous road obstructions.
The City of West Sacramento has these few recommendations to help dispose of those extra leaves:
- During leaf drop season (November 1st to January 31st) extra leaves may be placed next to your full organics cart in 30-gallon cans or in compostable bags (paper or ASTM D6400 rated) weighing no more than 50 pounds each.
- Call Waste Management at (866) 844-1508 to request an extra organics cart if needed (up to four at no additional cost).
Please do not place piles of leaves in front of your house on the street. They won’t be picked up. We appreciate everyone’s effort to help address this matter.
