Why are Woodland's Streets So Clean?
Thanks to a combination of its green waste and street sweeping programs, Woodland is proud to claim some of the cleanest streets around. The green waste program limits the types of green waste that can be put on the street, the amount of debris placed in the streets, and the timing for green waste piles.

Why is Street Sweeping Important to the Environment?
An effective street sweeping program is important because removing debris from gutters and roadsides means less debris goes down the storm drains and into the Tule Canal, eventually finding its way to the Sacramento River and causing water pollution.
Residents who rake or blow leaves and yard clippings into the street make it more difficult for street sweeper crews to remove these potential pollutants from the gutters and storm drains.
The City's street sweeping program is only part of the solution to water pollution. Residents can help by being aware of how their actions can contribute to or help solve the problem. For instance, overwatering can wash pollutants from yards and streets into gutters and storm drains. These pollutants include pesticides, fertilizers, motor oil and yard clippings.
