The street sweepers are designed to sweep and clean the streets and not vacuum leaves.
A significant build-up of leaves in the sweeper’s hopper can increase the risk of fire, similar to when a car is parked over a pile of leaves as hot exhaust and dry leaves create a fire danger.
Residents blowing their leaves either into a pile on the street or scattered across the street can create a hazard. In these instances, if the street sweepers encounter any piles of leaves on streets, they will bypass these areas or even the affected street entirely where leaves consume most of the surface area.
Your cooperation is appreciated so that the street sweepers can do a thorough job in our Village.
