Street Sweeping

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

Street sweeping is provided by the Public Works Operations Division. The Division’s three regenerativeStreet Sweeper image-air street sweepers are operated over the City’s 469 curb miles of paved streets. Their primary objective is reducing the amount of trash and pollution particulates that enter our storm drainage system and waterways.

The City has been divided into ten maintenance districts. The City is required by permit to routinely sweep all streets 12 times per year. The sweepers work in conjunction with leaf pick-up crews in November and December.  However, sweepers do no suspend routine street sweeping during those months; instead, additional sweeping is added during this effort.  

The following tips will assist our crew in providing optimal sweeping service on your street:

  • Remove garbage cans, yard debris receptacles, and recycling carts, from the street as soon as possible once trash has been collected.
  • Do not place basketball hoops in the street.
  • Whenever possible, park vehicles in the driveway or garage.
  • Refrain from blowing yard clippings, or sweeping debris, into the street.
  • Trim or remove any vegetation - including trees - within or extending over the street, interfering with the use of the sidewalk or roadway, or obstructing a driver's view.
  • Trim trees so that the minimum clearance of an overhanging portion is eight feet above the sidewalk. Bushes, shrubbery, and other vegetation may not overhand the sidewalk or roadway.
  • Effective January 1, 2020, the minimum clearance of overhanging trees and vegetation will increase from 13 to 15 feet above the roadway.  For more information please see our roadside vegetation page
