From the City: Section 19-118.2(f)(5) of the Dallas City Code prohibits the discharge of garbage, rubbish and yard waste into the storm drain. This means it is unlawful to blow yard debris into the street (and therefore into the storm drain), and can result in a $2,000 fine. Bag your yard waste and put it out for bulk trash each month.
Being a good neighbor inherently requires responsible action and consistent, daily acceptance of neighborhood responsibilities. Each of us contributes to our own benefit when we work together as a whole.
