Street Sweeping Near Me

Register for notifications about sweeping in your neighborhood

Street cleaning is one way that StreetsLA enhances the quality of life for all. The most familiar of our cleaning activities is our fleet of street sweepers, staffed by authorized full-time Motor Sweeper Operators.

There are more than 4,700 curb miles in Los Angeles where “No Parking” signs are posted to allow our sweepers to reach the curb, so we can clean the streets, keep trash out of our rivers and ocean, and prevent local flooding due to blocked storm drains.

Staff shortages due to the financial crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting Citywide hiring freeze necessitate that we reduce the frequency of street sweeping: routes that had received weekly sweeping will now be swept biweekly, meaning on either the first and third weeks of the month or the second and fourth weeks of the month.

Sign up for notifications when your street will be swept! Notifications will be sent 24 and 48 hours before we sweep the location that you register for. Fill out the form on this page, or use the map to explore other streets where you commonly park and to register for multiple locations. 

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.

Thank you for helping us better clean your neighborhood! By keeping routes free of parked cars, our sweepers can access the curb where debris collects, and this makes our streets safe, mobile and sustainable.
