Sand Bags

Sand and Sand Bags

When winter storms are predicted, sand and sand bags are available on Sunny Hills Drive, in the parking lot adjacent to the tennis courts. This location is directly across Sunny Hills Drive from Swirl, the yogurt shop in the Red Hill Shopping Center.

Sand and bags are available at this location to all San Anselmo residents and businesses for filling throughout the winter storm season.

  • Please bring your own shovel.
  • This is easiest as a two-person job
  • Please do not block traffic on Sunny Hills Drive

Note: In the spring, when the threat of flooding has subsided, you may dispose of your sand bags in the specified dumpster at the same location on Sunny Hills Drive.
