Each residential street in the 49th Ward is swept at least once a month from April 1 through mid-November.
To determine the street sweeping schedule for a given month, refer to the months listed under the map. Click on the name of the month and it will reveal a calendar setting forth the sections that will be swept on each day of that month.
Please note that permanent street sweeping schedules are posted on all our major commercial streets and on Glenwood and Ravenswood along the CTA and Metra embankments. Those streets are swept once or twice a week.
How can you help? Remind your neighbors to move their cars on street sweeping days. Refrain from blowing or raking leaves or other debris into the streets. Pick up litter along the curb rather than leaving it for the street sweepers. Street sweeper vehicles are slowed down by large volumes of leaves and litter. The more cooperation we have from the community, the more effectively we can sweep your street.
