Annual Winter Clean-Up - November 16 and 17th

The Annual Winter Clean-Up is scheduled for this weekend, November 16 and 17th.  This is the time to clear your property of fallen leaves and branches which could find their way into one of the City’s storm drains and cause flooding during the rainy season. 

Dumpsters will be placed throughout town for residents to dispose of their yard waste. 

Please place your yard trimmings and branches (less than 4 inches in diameter and NOT within plastic garbage bags) into the nearest-located dumpster.  A map of the dumpster locations is available at

If you need assistance, we will have limited staff available to transport your yard waste to one of the dumpsters.  For assistance, please call (415) 508-2146 during the following times:

Saturday, November 16:  10:00 AM – 3:00 PM

Sunday, November 17:  9:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Please remember that this is for YARD WASTE ONLY (leaves, branches, grass).  NO GARBAGE OR OTHER WASTE is to be disposed of in these dumpsters.  Doing so will make the entire load unrecyclable. 

As a reminder, do not attempt to trim tree branches that are touching or near PG&E power lines.  Call PG&E if you have any questions or concerns at (800) 743-5000.  If you have other questions regarding tree removal in general, see the Tree Removal Permit page on our website or call 508-2115. 

Thank you in advance for your willingness and cooperation in this City-wide effort.  If we all pitch in to clean up our properties from yard trimmings and fallen leaves, we can prevent future problems from occurring during the winter rains.
