If you’re trying to figure out the street sweeping schedules for your street, you’ve come to the right place. If the sweeping schedule isn’t posted on a sign on the street, it can be difficult to know when it will be coming next.
This guide should help you find the day that your street is swept so you can avoid parking tickets help the sweeper be as effective as possible. For every parked car that the street sweeper must maneuver around, three car-lengths of curb are missed.
While this may sound like a lot, water in the gutters of the street will have 10 times the impact on the quality of the sweeper over the amount of curb line missed. If you’re looking to increase to quality of your sweep and see how water impacts sweeping, download our Options to Reduce Street Staining handout.
Where do I find the Street Sweeping Schedule?
Where you should look first will depend on if you live on a public or private street.
If you live on a private street, one where the residents of the neighborhood are responsible for hiring a street sweeping company, there are several places you can look.
The community may be managed by a property management company and you could contact them directly.
If the community is part of a homeowners association, the sweeping schedule may be published on the HOA’s website.
The homeowners association may also publish a monthly newsletter or the association meeting minutes that have the schedule.
The next place you can inquire about sweeping is with the sweeping company itself.
Bill’s Sweeping Service provides sweeping services to homeowners associations across southern California.
Feel free to contact us directly if we’re the ones sweeping your street. On the other hand, if you live on a public street, one where the city is responsible for street sweeping, you can likely find the sweeping schedule on the Department of Public Works website for your city.
Department of Public Works are responsible for street sweeping, road maintenance, trash collection, and a handful of other services provided through the city in which you live.
