Street Sweeping

Regular Street Sweeping Schedules

Typically we sweep your street on a weekly basis and it is our goal to do that year round. However, during the fall leaf season, October - January, we may be off this schedule due to our heavy workload. A combination of the over-abundance of leaves to collect and/or holidays may make this goal impractical. During the fall and winter season it is our intent to make a complete round of the City on any given week, however, any equipment failure or storm interaction or City observed holiday can have a major affect on our ability to stay on schedule. If during this period you miss our sweep, be assured, we will sweep as soon as it is possible. Typically this would be during the week following but not necessarily on your regular day for sweeping. This would be a makeup and makeups are done as time allows.
