The City of Elk Grove Maintenance and Operations Division sweeps nearly 14,000 curb miles in the City each year. Our goal with this effort is to remove particulate matter, pollutants, and other debris from the roadway in an effort to prevent these materials from entering our storm drain system and local waterways.
Street Sweeping Schedules
City street sweeping schedules are reviewed each year and modified as necessary to meet program and City goals. Listed below are examples of our City wide schedules:
Residential Sweeping – Scheduled to occur every other month (6 times annually). The link below this list will show our residential schedule for the entire City. This schedule is updated annually beginning July 1st of each year.
Residential Leaf Sweeps – Residential leaf sweeps occur 4 times annually (or as needed) during the months of December and January. The number of sweeps and the months we sweep may be adjusted to accommodate leaf drop. These leaf sweeps are in addition to the residential sweeps noted above.
Major Corridors or Arterial Streets – Major streets in the City are swept at least twice per month with some of the busier corridors being swept weekly.
Commercial/Industrial Corridors - These streets are scheduled to be swept once per week.
Intersection Sweeps – All signalized intersections in the City are swept twice monthly from April to September and once monthly from October to March.
Important to note on residential streets, your neighborhood schedule may be adjusted to accommodate scheduled neighborhood cleanup days until after cleanup debris has been removed from the street. It’s also good to note your sweeping day and avoid parking cars on the street on these days.
Residential Street Sweeping Schedule
Do not place leaves or other garden waste into the street or gutters. The street sweeper cannot pick it up. The sweepers are not designed to pick up large piles of leaves. Do not sweep leaves from your front yard, sidewalk or planter strip onto the street. Instead please utilize your garden waste cart for all your yard and garden waste.
Please note: As a cost-saving measure, streets are no longer swept on holidays. When scheduled street sweeping falls on a holiday, the streets affected will be swept on their next regularly scheduled day.
