What special equipment / materials do I need?

A rake, broom, dust pan and bucket/pail should be all you need in terms of equipment. In the event you are interested in adopting a storm drain on a busy street, it is advised that you wear bright clothing or reflectors. Be aware that leaves, if water logged, can be heavy enough to break a rake!
