Street Sweeping Began Monday, April 1st

Chicago’s annual street sweeping season began earlier this week and runs through mid-November or later, weather permitting. Throughout the season, the Department of Streets and Sanitation (DSS) deploys mechanical street sweepers at regularly scheduled times to clear debris from Chicago streets. Dozens of street sweepers have  begun to clear the debris and leaves that have accumulated during winter months on both residential and arterial streets.

Residents are reminded to check for the bright orange signs announcing temporary parking restrictions. These signs are posted two days prior to scheduled street sweeping events. Some streets also have permanently posted signs that specify a once-per-week period when parking is prohibited for street sweeping.

Residents can also track the City’s street sweeping fleet in real time through the Sweeper Tracker online tool.
