‘The Claw’ returns to Sacramento
“The Claw” leaf collection returns to Sacramento streets. The city will send out 10 to 15 crews using the front-scooping machines and the companion rear-loader vegetation trucks to take away yard waste. All streets will have at least one collection between Monday and Nov. 8. It can take Claw crews an average of 10 days to complete street pickup for the entire city.
