The Department of Public Works (DPW) is responsible for street sweeping. Every spring, sweeping begins on the main lines of the city, followed by side streets on a ward-by-ward basis. The schedule rotates every year, so that the first ward done in one year is moved to the bottom of the list in the following year.
In 2021, wards will be swept in the following order. Please note we are doing night sweeping at this time. Wards 5A, 6A, 1A, 2B, 3A and 4A will be done at night.
