As the leaves begin to fall, please remember that leaves from your yard are not to be pushed or swept into the street. Our street sweeping equipment cannot handle the volume of leaves when residents sweep large amounts of leaves from their yard into the street. pic.twitter.com/dPRW0P309u— City of Lancaster, PA (@cityoflancpa) October 7, 2022
