2021 Spring Street Sweeping Schedule

citysealcolor

The Department of Public Works is responsible for the street sweeping. Every spring, sweeping begins on the main lines of the city, followed by side streets on a ward-by ward basis. The schedule rotates every year, so that the first ward done in one year is moved to the bottom of the list in the following year.  This year the DPW is trying to speed up the time it takes to sweep the entire city by sweeping 11PM to 7 AM as well as 7 AM to 3PM.

Please keep in mind that the schedule is subject to change due to weather or equipment problems. This time line all depends on the SNOW melting. Please note we are doing night sweeping at this time. Wards 5A, 6A, 1A, 2B, 3A and 4A will be done at night. In 2021, wards will be swept in the following order:

WardScheduled Street Sweeping
Ward 5March 29 - April 6
Ward 6April 7 - April 16
Ward 1April 19 - April 27
Ward 2April 28 - May 7
Ward 3May 10 - May 19
Ward 4May 20 - May 28


Residents are asked to sweep sidewalks in front of their homes. Sand should be placed in wind rows- not in piles- so that the equipment can successfully remove it.
