Ordinance on Leaf Raking
- There is an ordinance in place preventing the raking of leaves into the gutter. The street sweepers are not the proper equipment for leaf pick up, but do a decent job on the natural falling leaf amounts. If they are piled up, they plug up the machines and then they need to be repaired. With over 400 miles of side streets we do not have the manpower or the equipment to pick up all the leaves in Warren. Homeowners are responsible for their own leaves. They are to be placed in marked compost cans or in paper bags. Sanitation will pick them up on regular trash pick up day.
