Why doesn't the City have a set sweeping schedule?

Currently the City has no set sweeping schedule because sweeper routes are complex and daily sweeping may be interrupted to respond to special situations such as vehicle accidents clean-ups, winter sand recovery (after a snow or ice storm) and leaf collections. Other factors that contribute to a variable schedule are debris load sizes, sweeper down time, staffing levels and storm events.


If you would like to be informed when street sweeping will start in your area you can sign up for street sweeping notification. The street sweeping notification will not tell you the exact date your street will be swept but it will inform you a range of days that sweeping will take place, including things that you can do to ensure your street gets swept.
