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.
Although the City doesn’t have a set sweeping schedule we do offer a program called Sweeper Track. This program will allow residents to look up their address on the City’s website and see their route and if the route is in progress of being swept. It will also show our progress and where they’re expected to work the next day. Our hope is that this will give more accurate information into our timing and let people understand when we’ll be on their street.
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. Residents can help sweepers clean streets by following residential container placement options. Container Placement | Eugene, OR Website
