Dublin residents are able to dispose of fall leaves using two methods: 1) Place them in the residential green organics cart provided by the City’s waste hauler, Amador Valley Industries (AVI). If the quantity of leaves is greater than the size of the organics cart, residents may: 2) Contact AVI directly and schedule one of three annual “large item pick-ups” with the company. Leaves must be bagged and set into the curb; the volume of the bagged leaves cannot exceed 7 cubic yards. Routine street sweeping in Dublin removes leaves that have naturally fallen into the gutter or roadway. However, the sweeping vehicle does not have the capacity to pick up leaves that have been swept from residential yards into the gutter or roadway. Please do not attempt to dispose of leaves by sweeping them into the gutter or roadway. If leaves have been swept from residential yards into the gutter or roadway, the street sweeping vehicle will pass the leaves and proceed to the adjacent open gutter.
A Geologic Hazard Abatement District (GHAD) is an independent, public agency that is a creation of State of California statute. A GHAD oversees geologic hazard prevention, mitigation, abatement, and control. GHADs operate with a focus on the prevention of geologic hazards, with mitigation and abatement also being primary functions. A “geologic hazard” is broadly defined as an actual or threatened landslide, land subsidence, soil erosion, earthquake, fault movement or any other natural or unnatural movement of land or earth.
Residents are encouraged to call the GHAD at any time they have concerns about the stability of the slopes on or near their property. The GHAD is also available to answer questions that relate to other geologic hazards (e.g. landslides, erosion or other earth movement) including drainage issues. In addition, the GHAD owns a number of the open space parcels surrounding the development and we can respond to questions about fire breaks, litter, animals, and fencing.
Contact information for the GHAD Services Consultant can be found on the Dublin GHADs’ website at www.dublin.ca.gov/1607/Geologic-Hazard-Abatement-Districts-GHAD or on the communications plan.
GHAD services are funded by a special assessment on the annual property tax statement on residential properties within the GHAD. Homeowners pay no additional fees for GHAD services. Services provided by the GHAD are restricted to those expressed in the GHAD governing documents.
No. The GHAD is a State-authorized independent agency, separate from the City, County, and any other local authority. The GHAD is governed by its Board of Directors - the members of the Dublin City Council serving as the GHAD Board of Directors.
