The City of Paso Robles wants to remind residents to collect and properly dispose of the leaves on their property.

City officials say leaves left in the street can clog storm drains and flood roads when it rains.

They suggest residents put their yard waste in green trash bins on a regularly scheduled waste collection days.

The city has some other tips:

-Blowing or raking private property leaves into the street (gutter or storm drain) does not constitute proper cleanup or disposal.

-If possible, mow over your leaves to create mulch. This will greatly reduce the amount of fallen leaves to cleanup and your lawn will love it!

-Residents that have yard service are asked to remind landscaping service companies and yard care providers that leaves must be placed in the green waste bin.

If you have any questions on proper disposal procedures, call the Public Works Department at 237-3861.
