don't put your yard waste in the streets or parks:
The City Public Works Department
reminds property owners that depositing grass clippings, leaves, weeds, etc. into
the gutters along street curbs causes storm sewer inlet grates to become plugged when it
rains and contributes to the deterioration of water quality.
Help Us Catch Vandals: Graffiti and vandalism in our Parks is becoming an
increasing problem. If you witness vandalism taking place please contact the Robbinsdale
Police Department at 763-531-1220 or call 911.
Sanitary Sewer Problems: Do not flush dryer sheets, diapers, disposable wipe
products or personal hygiene products down your toilet. Do not pour grease, oil or
fats down your sink. Older homes should have their sewer lines televised once every 5
years for preventative maintenance.
