Blowing or Sweeping Leaves or Grass Clippings in the Streets is a Violation
Did you know that grass clippings and tree leaves are considered a source of pollution when washed directly into storm drains? Any material swept or blown into neighborhood streets and curb inlets along our city streets enter storm drains. The storm drains carry that waste material to one of our creeks here in Arlington. Too many grass clippings and leaves cloud the water and block the sunlight that is essential to aquatic life. And, as they decompose, can lower the oxygen content of the water which can also harm fish and other living things.
