Pollution Prevention - Recycle Autumn Leaves

Leaves clog our storm drains and reduce the capacity of our drainage ditches which adds to flooding problems every year. Overloading creeks with leaves can deplete the water of oxygen as the leaves decompose and low levels are harmful to fish. Please help protect our roads and creeks!


Keep leaves out of gutters, storm drains and drainage ditches which lead directly to creeks.


Compost the leaves and use rich nutrients to enhance your garden.

Although every effort is made to provide complete and accurate information on this website, users are advised to contact appropriate Permit Sonoma staff before making project decisions. This may involve contacting more than one section within Permit Sonoma(e.g. Building, Plan Check, Zoning, Well & Septic, etc.) since each section implements specific codes or ordinances which may affect your project.
