Sweeping Program Information

"No Parking" Signs

Look for sweeping signs posted in more congested areas a few days prior to the actual sweeping. The date listed is a target date and we may or may not be on your street that day. We can't guarantee that we'll be sweeping on the exact date listed on the posted sign. If no date is listed on the sign then we will be writing an estimated date in a few days.

Also note that we will NOT tow cars for sweeping and will NOT return to re-sweep after cars are moved.

Please note that both sides of the street may not be swept immediately. It may take up to 4 hours to return to sweep the opposite side of the street.

Limited off-street parking?

Try parking in areas on the street with no or less sand and debris, usually at the top of hills. Or you can temporarily park on the grass beside the road as long as you don't block sidewalks. If you're close to a school you could park there. You could also ask a neighbor if you could park in their driveway. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Last Year's Program Facts

Over 1000 tons of dirt, sand, and debris were collected, thus providing protection for sensitive watershed areas.

The Department of Environmental Protection sensitive watershed areas were swept early in the program.

4047 curb miles were swept.
