Heavy leaf-fall sweeping program
Selected streets across Boroondara receive an enhanced sweeping service over the autumn and early winter. The 2013 Heavy leaf-fall sweeping program is now available.
Help Council keep your street clean by:
- keeping your vehicles off the street on the designated sweeping day
- asking people who leave their vehicles parked in the street to participate in the program
- making sure leaves are free of sticks, branches and rocks, as they will damage the machinery.
Note: Leaves from your front yard are not for collection by the street sweeper.
Excess leaves on the nature strip and footpath can be mulched using a lawn mower and placed in compost - visit our Environment pages for composting tips and hints.
This trial street sweeping service aims to improve the amenity of the City and acts on community feedback to improve the service. Your feedback will help Council evaluate changes. Let us know your thoughts by completing this brief online survey.
