Reminders on How to Clear and Dispose of Autumn Leaves

Although the weather is warm, the trees are dropping their leaves with the advent of fall. We would like to remind community members to clean up leaves on your property by putting them in your green bin. During the warm weather this is good practice to reduce fire fuels. Please do not sweep leaves into the street - once the rains begin, these leaves will block storm drains and may lead to flooding. 

Please also remember that since 1993, the use of gasoline-powered leaf blowers has been prohibited in Mill Valley in an effort to minimize air and noise pollution. You may use electric leaf blowers, electric leaf vacuums, rake, or sweep leaves.
