We live in a great city and one of the best things about Canberra is how green we are. There is no doubt that we all love having lots of trees in our suburbs and in our neighbourhoods. However, with trees come falling leaves, particularly during the autumn and winter months.

Falling leaves which are not swept up regularly not only cause a trip hazard on our footpaths and roads impacting on the safety of pedestrians (especially older Canberrans and residents with children or pets) but also make their way into our waterways, causing a build-up of material which can lead to excess blue/green algae in our lakes.

The Canberra Liberals want to hear from you about the current arrangements for street sweeping in your neighbourhood.
