No. Please do not blow leaves into the street. To properly dispose of leaves place them into a yard waste container. Leaves have the potential to back up storm drains and cause flooding. In addition, leaves piled in the street, can clog the street sweeper creating damage and delaying progress.

The City of Monroe has an approved street tree listing that may be used for selecting tree specimens. Property owners are responsible for the care of the area in front of their property. Please submit a right of way disturbance permit before planting trees.
The City welcomes reports from drivers about roadways in need of repair. Providing us with the exact location (for example, eastbound lane on Main St just north of Dennis Way) will help speed response time. To report a pothole, fill out a request using Monroe Listens or call 360-794-6100.
The City has over 52 lane miles of roads that are swept on a regular basis. During the fall leaf season, two sweepers are operated to help reduce the chance of localized flooding. During spring to summer, sweeping resources are reduced in order to focus on other operational needs.
To request to have your street swept, please submit a request through Monroe Listens or call 360-794-6100. Requests will be reviewed.
Trees need to be trimmed to a height of fourteen (14) feet above the street. Sidewalks need to be clear from overhead vegetation to a height of eight (8) feet, and all walkways must be clear of vegetation. Please click here for diagram.
We wish we had enough snowplows and drivers to take care of every street right away, but our resources are limited and so we must adhere to a carefully laid out system for clearing the streets. To keep our snow removal operations as effective and efficient as possible plows follow priority routes. Plows will remain on priority routes until they are clear.
When plowing, the snow may end up in the driveway you just shoveled. We apologize for the inconvenience this causes you. If your schedule permits, you may want to wait and clear your driveway after city plows have passed through your street. If it is a significant snowfall, the snowplows will probably be back and make a second pass. Streets are typically opened with one pass through, so that streets can be made passable for drivers as soon as practical. Snowplows usually return to open the street curb-to-curb.
SNOW REMOVAL TIP… If your driveway is cleared before the street is completed, clear the area to the right of your driveway (when facing the house). When the plow comes by the snow will dump in this clear area, minimizing the amount left in your driveway.
