Street Sweeping diagram

Clean streets mean safer streets - for bicyclists, pedestrians, cars and our environment!

Street Sweeping Schedule (Maps):
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

  • Streets are usually cleaned on the day after your pick-up service. 
  • If your pickup day is Monday, your street may be cleaned on Tuesday, the next day.
  • We try to get to every residential street every other week.
  • These schedules often vary due to work-load and weather.

Facts 
Did you know that debris left on city streets will eventually find its way to the ocean? That means that cigarette butts, heavy metals, motor oil, fertilizers and other chemicals can be washed down storm drains when it rains.

What You Can Do
You can keep City streets clean by raking up leaves, and by adopting and cleaning up the closest storm drain. By trimming all the bushes and trees that are over or close to the street and gutter you will keep sidewalks and streets clean and accessible.

Street sweepers need at least 16 feet of clearance above the gutter and at least a foot back into the sidewalk to avoid damaging the street sweeping equipment. Place those leaves and trimmings in your GreenCycle! cart or call 420-LESS to get a compost bin.

Please have vehicles and obstructions like basketball hoops off of the streets the day after your garbage pick-up.

What We Do
City crews clean most streets twice a month.
Higher traffic areas and bike paths are cleaned more often.
