Flinter or Fallter? Here we are, still not quite done with fall, yet still not full on winter. Call it what you like - Flinter or Fallter, we are right at the seasonal change between Fall and Winter. Because it’s a little bit of both, it is time finish with the Yalecrest Great Leaf Raking Harvest and get on with the Snow Removal Grind.

Take a look at these LEAF raking and SNOW removal tips,
resources and regulations to HELP you this season: 

Leaf Raking – Get’rDone
All leaves and yard waste along with food scraps are to be placed in the SLC Waste Brown (Composting) Bin.

  • If you have remaining autumn yard waste to dispose of, please call Waste and Recycling as soon as possible to request an extra leaves-only can so you can dispose of them before the January 23 – March 10 suspension Contact 801-535-6999 or 
  • Rake and shovel all leaves out of gutters and place in brown bin. Leaves in gutters block water flow and causing storm drains to overflow, flood neighbors, yards and streets. When frozen they create unsafe driving when frozen, and pollute our creeks and rivers for people and ecology downstream
  • Blowing leaves into the street and gutter – That’s a NO!

Sidewalk Snow Removal – ARG
Salt Lake City has in place a “snow removal ordinance” 14.20.070 that aims to help protect the safety and welfare of people using city sidewalks. To stay on top of snow removal in Yalecrest please do the following:
  • Remove snow and ice from your property sidewalk within 24 hours after a storm
  • Please join forces on your block to help everyone on your street keep sidewalks clear of snow.  Lend a shovel or snow blower to assist your neighbors, especially those with specific challenges.
  • Salt Lake City government asks that you shovel snow to the right of the drive when facing the street. This will help make sure that when your street is plowed snow will not be pushed right back into your driveway
  • Blowing snow into the street or on neighbors walks and yards. That’s a NO!
  • On or near your property, please shovel snow away from fire hydrants, bus stops / bus benches. This will keep us all more fire safe, plus make taking public transit and keeping our air clean just a little bit more do-able

Holiday trees are collected in the brown compost can through January 20
  • Please cut the tree down to fit all the way in the can
  • If you have a very large tree, place it on the curb no later than your collection day the week of January 16
  • Please remove all lights and trimmings
  • No flocked trees—the trees are taken to the composting facility and artificial materials cannot be processed
  • This temporary brown bin suspension will mean a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions equivalent of removing 13 passenger vehicles from the road for an entire year
Round and Roundabout – Change Ahead1700 East Mini Roundabouts
One thing that stays constant in the Yalecrest neighborhood is our quest to create safe and active street environments. Despite our envied neighborhood plan, Yalecrest remains challenged by unsafe streets caused by high speed automobile drivers. Roundabouts are a great solution to promote safe driving, walking and biking. Roundabouts helpful on all streets because they keep automobiles flowing efficiently, ease congestion, reduce idling and fuel consumption.

If you’ve driven your car on 1700 East  lately you’ve experienced the new mini roundabouts. This may be new for some Yalecrest drivers, but with a little practice, driving on 17th East will soon become a breeze. With all driving, put down the phone and be text free while behind the wheel.

Roundabout Tips: 
  • Slow down
  • Look left and yield to oncoming autos or bikes
  • Wait for gap in traffic and enter the roundabout
  • Use your blinker if exiting the roundabout
  • Proceed to your exit
  • Always yield to pedestrians and emergency vehicles when exiting roundabout. If an emergency vehicle is about to enter or has already entered the roundabout, do not stop in the roundabout. Instead, exit out your original destination an only then pull over
