Street Sweeping to Fully Resume June 15
Street sweeping with parking enforcement will resume June 15 after a temporary suspension that began in March as part of the COVID-19 response.
Weekly street sweeping is an essential service that removes debris from the streets and keeps pollutants from entering the ocean and waterways.
City crews have been picking up trash and hand-sweeping since March but are unable to match the effectiveness of machine sweeping. A build-up of trash and landscaping debris on the streets presents a potential hazard for ocean water quality.
The City recognizes that street parking during sweeping is a challenge. The routes have been designed to minimize impacts. The City’s weekly sweeping is one of the most effective ways to protect our water quality and keep our City clean.
