Collector and residential streets and bike lanes are swept four times per year.
Operation Clean Sweep 2013
Operation Clean Sweep concludes residential sweeping for the year. City Sweepers will remove fallen leaves and debris throughout neighborhood streets. It is critical to remove all debris from curb to curb to allow proper snow and ice drainage during the winter season. Clogged storm drains may cause localized flooding. Standing water will continuously freeze and thaw in winter months, which can result in premature damage to streets. Also, be sure to review tips on this page for maximizing a clean sweep.
Operation Clean Sweep will wrap up in mid-December. In the event of inclement weather, sweeping will be postponed until conditions improve. Any missed areas will be re-visited when time allows at the end of the program.

What you can maximize a clean sweep
Citizens can help the street sweepers do their job on scheduled street sweeping days by removing vehicles, trash cans, basketball hoops and other obstructions from the street. It is also helpful is citizens keep tree branches and bushes trimmed back so sweepers can sweep up to the curb line. Residents, business owners and landscape companies can also help out by not blowing grass clippings or disposing yard waste, leaves and branches into the street for a sweeper to clean up.
