The sweeping of city streets began Tuesday, September 7th. This effort takes between two and three weeks to complete, weather permitting. Sweeping streets ensures safe modes of transportation for everyone not to mention clean roadways aid in improving air and storm water quality.
Residents can help by keeping the curb abutting their property clear of leaves so that the storm sewers do not become clogged. Backyard composting is a great option for fallen leaves and your garbage hauler may also offer leaf collection (check with your specific carrier). You can also bring leaves to the Arden Hills Waste Collection site located at 3530 Hudson Avenue (photo ID required). The site is free of charge.
