Preparing before the rainy season

  1. Dispose of yard waste and leaves by composting or using your green cart. There is no extra service charge for using up to two additional carts or paper bags – 32 gallons or smaller. You can also rent an additional 64-gallon green cart from Marin Sanitary Service.
  2. Don’t place anything in the street or in the way of a drainage system.
  3. If your home is in the path of runoff, get sandbags and keep plywood, plastic sheeting, and lumber on hand to divert water and debris.
  4. If your basement is subject to flooding, consider installing a sump pump with generator back-up.
  5. Don’t pour chemicals, paints, or other Household Hazardous Waste in areas where it might flow into the storm drain.
