Why does the City schedule street sweeping on the same day as my garbage pick-up day?
Coordinating sweeping activities around garbage and recycling services would be very difficult. There are multiple refuse haulers within the city limits that provide garbage and recycling services on various days throughout the week. Attempting to avoid certain areas within sweeping routes on several collection days would not only be challenging to arrange, but also costly and inefficient.

The City of Eugene has no set sweeping schedule because sweeper routes are complex and may be interrupted to respond to emergency situations. With over 2000 city streets, alleys and bike paths to maintain with limited resources, coordinating street sweeping around refuse collection and other commercial activities is not currently feasible.
