Beginning Wednesday, July 1, 2020, street sweeping will resume on the regularly posted days, per street signs -- WITHOUT ENFORCEMENT.
Parking enforcement of sweeping days will restart when the Stay at Home Orders are completely lifted, and there will be a two-week grace period when that occurs. For more information, please call the Public Works Department at (760) 435-4500. Thank you!
The City Street Sweeping program maintains the roughly 480 centerline miles of City streets removing more than 45 tons per week of debris, trash, and other harmful constituents that would otherwise pollute the environment. For example, over 1200 gallons of oil are recovered from street sweeping debris every year! Areas of the City are swept every weekday, to once a month according to their use.
The main emphasis of the street sweeping program is to keep the storm drain conveyance system free of material that could possibly clog and cause flooding during a rain event. Secondly is the protection of the environment. Lastly, the result is the positive aesthetic enhancement that a freshly swept street creates.
To allow the program to meet its goal of sweeping the street, enforcement signs are posted in all residential areas for bi-weekly periods in which they are swept. Check the signs on your street for your day/time of sweep. For a map of streets and their days/times of enforcement, click here. Street Sweeping Zone Map (724 KB)
