***STREET SWEEPING OPERATION CHANGES - EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 1, 2022**
Effective February 1, 2022, the City's Street Sweeping program implemented operational changes by switching the day(s) of the week for street sweeping in some areas of the City to accommodate the changes in the new trash and recycling collection days. These changes will avoid conflicts, address parking conditions and maintain street sweeping effectiveness. Please refer to the street sweeping route maps here for more detailed information.
Weekly street sweeping is an essential service that removes debris from the streets and keeps pollutants from entering the ocean, waterways and beautiful Newport Harbor. The City recognizes that street parking during sweeping is a challenge, especially during the summer months. Should a City resident or business have any issues or concerns related to street sweeping operations and services provided, please report the item(s) by clicking on the "Report an Issue" box link.

In late 2021, the City's street sweeping contractor, Sunset Property Services, was acquired by Sweeping Corporation of America (SCA). With their purchase, SCA will re-brand the street sweepers formerly utilized by Sunset with their logo and information. The purchase of Sunset by SCA does not change the City's contract, the terms of service or the drivers and staff the City will work with to ensure the City of Newport Beach residents and business owners continue to receive the highest quality of street sweeping services as possible. If you have any questions or seek additional information about the seamless transition from Sunset to SCA, please contact the Street Sweeping Division at the numbers below.
STREET SWEEPING GENERAL INFORMATION
Street sweeping serves as one of our best management practices to control and improve water quality. The City's contractor currently sweeps 239 miles of streets weekly and 33 miles of alleys twice a month. Motorized sweeping removes visible and invisible debris from the streets before it goes into the storm drains. Visible debris, such as paper and leaves, can collect in the gutter, which blocks storm water facilities and can cause localized flooding during heavy rains. Invisible debris, such as metal particles and other hazardous waste products left by passing vehicles, can be extremely harmful to fish and other wildlife if it reach our creeks, rivers, beaches and bays.
For more information on keeping our waterways safe and clean, please visit Clean Water Newport.
Please help the sweepers keep your streets clean by making sure there are no large amounts of standing water along the gutter, do not pile or "mound" debris such as leaves in the gutters, and please move all portable basketball hoops away from the curb area. Large areas of debris often contain items such as rocks that can damage the sweeping equipment. Additionally, excess water in the gutter will overload the sweeper system.
Use our interactive map to find your address and scheduled street sweeping day. Please note, in areas where on-street parking is highly used, the two sides of the street may be swept on different days.
