Street Sweeping Program

  • Street sweeping keeps roads safe by removing debris, such as paper and leaves that may be an obstacle to pedestrians and bikes.  Sweeping removes debris that clog stormdrains and reduces the amount of pollutants that collects on city streets.

  • Residential street sweeping 

    Residential streets are swept monthly March through December during daytime hours. If weather conditions or a holiday prevent sweeping a street as scheduled, it will be swept at the end of that month. If there is no time left, it will be done on its next turn.

    Arterial street sweeping 

    Transportation provides year-round sweeping of the City's arterial streets the third week of each month, Monday through Friday, between 2:00 am and 7:00 am. 

    Help us keep streets clear 

    Keep these items off the street when your street is due to be swept:

    • Garbage cans
    • Recycle carts
    • Cars
    • Boats
    • Campers
    • Basketball hoops
    • Overhanging tree branches must be at least 12’ above the street and 8’ above the sidewalk
    • Keep vegetation from overhanging the curb

    Streets and leaves don't mix 

    Don't blow or place leaves or yard debris in the street. This is a violation of City code. The City sweeps leaves that naturally fall or blow into the streets from nearby trees.
