Information on Catch Basin Cleaning
The Department of Public Works’ maintenance department is responsible for cleaning and clearing catch basins of debris. There are 68,092 catch basins in the City. Each year the City budgets resources to clean approximately 3,500 catch basins.
Residents can help keep catch basins clear of debris by disposing of leaves and other yard waste properly. Proper yard waste disposal includes placing leaves, sticks and twigs in garbage bags, tying the garbage bag closed, placing the garbage bags in City-issued receptacles, and closing the lid of the garbage can.
