We hope to begin sweeping the streets of Scarborough later this week - weather permitting. We have no set schedule, aside from our plan to start at opposite ends of town with our two street sweepers, and work our way through and around town as weather permits. 

Historically, residents have been known to put their yard debris into the street, for us to take care of with the sweeper. However, per a new ordinance, it is now unlawful to put any yard waste or wood waste into any paved street or the Town's right of way. (Yard waste includes: earthen fill, soil, sand, grass, leaves, and other vegetative matter) Violators may be subject to fines. 

Remember, all Scarborough residents may bring grass clippings and leaves to the Community Recycling Center free of charge! Also, if you hire a contractor to clean your property, please make sure that they are hauling away any debris, rather than placing/blowing it into the roadways.
