Annual Winter Clean Up

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

annual winter clean up

The Annual Winter Clean-Up is scheduled for the weekend of November 2 & 3.  This is the time to clear your property of fallen leaves and branches which could find their way into one of the City’s storm drains and cause flooding during the rainy season.

Dumpsters will be placed throughout town for residents to dispose of their yard waste.  

Please place your yard trimmings and branches (less than 4 inches in diameter and NOT within plastic garbage bags) into the nearest-located dumpster.  Click here for a map of the dumpster locations to help residents locate them easily.  

If you need assistance, we will have limited staff available to transport your yard waste to one of the dumpsters.  For assistance, please call (415) 508-2147 during the following times:

Saturday, November 2:  10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Sunday, November 3:  9:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Please remember that this is for YARD WASTE ONLY (leaves, branches, grass).  NO GARBAGE OR OTHER WASTE is to be disposed of in these dumpsters.  Doing so will make the entire load unrecyclable.  

As a reminder, do not attempt to trim tree branches that are touching or near PG&E power lines.  Call PG&E if you have any questions or concerns at (800) 743-5000.  If you have other questions regarding tree removal in general, see the Tree Removal Permit page on our website or call (415) 508-2120.  

Thank you in advance for your willingness and cooperation in this City-wide effort.  If we all pitch in to clean up our properties from yard trimmings and fallen leaves, we can prevent future problems from occurring in our storm drains.

Coyote Workshop at PHS

coyote workshop

Last Friday, the Peninsula Humane Society (PHS) hosted a workshop titled, "Inside the Loves of Urban Coyotes".  It was a packed house with residents from all over the Peninsula in attendance.  The workshop featured a talk and photos taken by Janet Kessler, a naturalist who is in her 13th year of daily field research (ethology), observing and photo-documenting urban coyote behavior and coexistence.  View the handout that Janet shared with attendees here, along with her website, www.coyoteyipps.com.  The below video captures much of what Janet shared with the audience:

We know that coyotes have been seen more regularly in Brisbane, and thus have created this page to keep the community apprised of how to co-exist with urban coyotes.  If you want to report an aggressive coyote, please call (415) 508-1212.
