Can I sweep leaves and grass on to the street for the street sweeper to pick up?
No, you must place this waste in plastic bags. The street sweeper is not designed to remove piles of leaves and debris, and therefore will bypass them. Remember everything that gets thrown in the street goes down the storm drain, which leads directly to the ocean.
