Street Sweeping 6/11/18 – 6/15/18
Residential streets are swept six times a year, while major streets are swept once a month. This schedule allows for the regular sweeping of many of the City’s prized bicycle facilities, located both on residential and major streets.
Keep your trees trimmed so that there is a least 14 feet of clearance above your curb. Trim your bushes so they do not block the curb line.
Do not rake or blow leaves, grass or other trash into the streets. This is prohibited by City ordinance. Street sweeping equipment is not able to handle limbs, branches or large quantities of grass and leaves. You should dispose of these materials through your weekly yard trimmings collection.
On your scheduled street cleaning week, avoid parking on streets, remove empty trash and recycling carts, and remove other obstacles such as basketball hoops. Doing so will help avoid debris being left behind on your street.
Sweepers operate Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m..http://austintexas.gov/department/street-sweeping
