Keeping Our Streets Clean

leaves

The City's Public Works Department cleans about 600 miles of streets each month in the City of Schertz. In order to maintain all of the roadways, the sweepers follow a regular monthly schedule. To ensure the sweepers make all of the rounds, the City asks that residents do not dump, push, sweep, or blow yard waste- including leaves, tree limbs, or brush- into City streets or right of ways. Placing large amounts of leaves and debris in the roadways can cause several problems such as delays in the schedule or equipment failures. Vacuum chutes on sweepers can become clogged if large amounts of debris get sucked into the equipment. Residents should mulch leaves when mowing the lawns or rake and bag them to be placed out with the trash for pickup. 

The Public Works Department works hard to keep up with sweeping schedules with minimal delays. As our City is continuing to grow at a rapid pace, it becomes a challenge to complete the entire city with just two sweepers. This is the busiest time of the season with the leaves falling throughout the city, and we ask that you please do your part to keep our streets clean.
