Help Us Achieve a Clean Sweep in Elk River

Street Sweeper

You may have noticed Elk River Public Works staff out and about around the city sweeping up the remnants of fall. Not only does street sweeping beautify the city, but it also helps prevent pollution in local bodies of water because it stops debris from entering the stormwater system. Here are a few tips to help us make the street sweeping operation as efficient as possible:

  • Don’t rake or dump yard debris in the street.
  • Keep your garbage/recycling containers in your driveway on collection day, not in the street.
  • Basketball hoops should be kept in your driveway, as to not impede the sweeping process.
  • If you typically park on the street, consider switching up your parking spot for a few days (especially if you’re parking in a pile of leaves each day).
