Street Cleaning Schedule
Street cleaning is done by neighborhood according to this schedule. To determine your neighborhood, reference this diagram. You can also visit the Community GIS, enter your address into the search bar, and your next scheduled street cleaning date will appear under the "Street Cleaning Schedule" tab on the right.
Each neighborhood is cleaned once every two weeks, except on holidays. From November through January, residential sweeping is increased to once a week to remove excess leaves from trees.
Cleaning in the neighborhood starts at 7:30 a.m. and ends when the route is complete. This may last until 2:00 p.m. in larger neighborhoods. Commercial and industrial streets are swept between 4:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. before rush hour.
Additionally, street sweepers do not clean streets that
- Are private.
- Do not have a curb and gutter.
- Are within the San Mateo County's unincorporated areas.
Be Prepared For Cleaning!
To ensure quick and quality street cleaning, please make sure the curb in front of your property is clear. This includes moving the following out of the sweeper's path:
- Cars, trucks, or other vehicles.
- Large trash items such as tree branches or appliances.
- Large piles of leaves or debris. Leaf piles should contain only leaves and be low and spread out along the curb. Dispose of debris properly.
Moving your vehicle is mandatory along certain segments of Douglas Avenue and Broadway, Beech, Marshall, and Maple Streets. No parking from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. is enforced on cleaning days at those locations. See diagram 1 and diagram 2 for the specific locations.
