Why are the village streets swept?

The street sweeping is done to clear debris left by winter snowplowing, to keep storm drains free of obstruction, and to help prevent pollutants from entering the drainage system. The sweeping is not intended to remove leaves placed in the street by property owners. Leaves from private properties should be mulched and left on the lawn, or bagged and taken to the Orchard Ridge Landfill with a yard waste permit.
