New Refuse, Recycling and Street Sweeping Guide PDF Print E-mail

Street sweeping is conducted to improve the cleanliness, health and safety of the City. Street sweepers remove debris from our streets and prevent it from entering our storm drains. Storm drains lead straight to the ocean and are meant for rainwater only.

Street sweeping also helps the City comply with state and federal stormwater quality requirements. Street sweeping may or may not occur  on rainy days. If the streets are too wet, sweepers cannot remove debris. Please review the new 2015 refuse recycling and street sweeping guide to determine the day your scheduled street sweeping day.
