Sweeping Changes

Sweeping Changes

Starting on Monday, March 1, StreetsLA will modify its street sweeping operations, while launching a new notification system where residents can register for notification of when their street will be swept. With the financial crisis spawned by the COVID-19 pandemic, StreetsLA is losing staff due to retirements and a Citywide hiring freeze. This necessitates a reduction in the frequency of street sweeping: routes in the City that had received weekly sweeping will now be swept biweekly–that is, every other week.

In order to assist residents with this change, StreetsLA has created the “Street Sweeping Near Me” notification system. At the StreetsLA website, anyone can explore the map of sweeping routes across the City and sign up for email notification about when their street will be swept. Notifications will be sent 24 and 48 hours before StreetsLA will be sweeping that route. This will give residents the opportunity to move their vehicle prior to the posted sweeping time and avoid being ticketed. Additionally, it is important that residents move their vehicles during street sweeping to allow our sweepers access to the curb where debris collects. Where our sweepers have to drive around parked vehicles, we cannot clean as effectively.

The “Street Sweeping Near Me” system allows users to input one or more addresses or to use an interactive map to identify multiple routes of interest, so they can receive notifications about all of their regular parking locations. The “Street Sweeping Near Me” System is currently only in English but we are working to add other languages in the near future.

We encourage all residents to be mindful of street signage to avoid being ticketed. Vehicles will be cited if they are parked in restricted areas on days when street cleaning is scheduled. The Street Sweeping Near Me webpage and notification system will let you know when sweeping is planned for your street so you can plan accordingly. For more information about parking and parking enforcement, please visit the LA Department of Transportation’s parking information pages.

If you have any questions, please contact us or direct residents to the City’s 3-1-1 Call Center by dialing 311 on your phone, Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and on weekends from 8:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. or by using the myla311 app. For information about parking and parking enforcement, please visit the LA Department of Transportation’s parking information pages.
