Is it ok to blow leaves and grass clippings into the street or storm drain?
No. Doing so is considered an illicit discharge and is prohibited by City Ordinance. Only rain should be flowing into the storm drain. Storm drains are built to move stormwater away from roads and structures. Debris blown into the street or intentionally placed in the storm drain can block flow and cause localized flooding. Please bag leaf litter and grass clippings, or better yet, use them in your yard for mulch. To report an illicit discharge to a storm drain, call (407) 571-8331.
