News release issued by the city of Santa Clarita.

During the fall and winter seasons, the city of Santa Clarita will increase the frequency of street sweeping throughout all areas of the city beginning this week.  Street sweeping will take place every week following trash pickup days between the hours of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. to help keep streets, and particularly gutters, clean and free of falling leaves and debris.

Residents are asked to do their part to increase the effectiveness of the citywide street sweeping by removing vehicles from the street during scheduled street sweeping days.  Residents are also encouraged to keep the street clear of lawn and tree trimmings, trash and debris, and remove portable basketball courts from the streets.

Additionally, it is important that residents do not pile or stack leaves in the street or in yards.  All leafy debris should be placed in the green waste container supplied by the trash service provider. This is to ensure that the street sweeping equipment does not become plugged, which would result in delays in the street sweeping service.

Street sweeping will return to the monthly schedule Jan. 23, 2017.  For more information, go to santa-clarita.com and search street sweeping for the scheduled daily sweeping routes or call the City’s Environmental Services Division at (661) 286-4098.
