Every-Other-Week Street Sweeping Pilot Project

Every-Other-Week Street Sweeping Pilot Project

The City is conducting a pilot project to test every-other-week street sweeping service during the non-leaf season months of March through September.  The pilot will evaluate whether the City can save costs by reducing sweeping frequency without significantly impacting residents or the environment. Weekly street sweeping service will continue during the leaf season months (October through February).
 
Pilot areas were chosen from current street sweeping routes and are located in different areas of the City to get a better understanding of the impacts of the service changes. A map of the pilot routes is available at the bottom of the page. The downtown areas of University and California Avenue and their surrounding streets are not included in this pilot project nor are they being considered for street sweeping reductions in the future. As part of the parking districts, these areas have different street sweeping schedules and rates.
 
The pilot project will run from May 13, through the end of September 2013.   The pilot was approved by the Finance Committee on March 19. Staff report 3483.
 
If you have questions, please call (650) 496-6974.
 
 
Street Sweeping Pilot Project Calendar
Pilot participants will have their street swept every-other-week. Below is a calendar to help you remember your street sweeping day. 
 
If your street sweeping day falls on a holiday, your street will be swept on a different day of the same week.
