Street Sweeping

Top Street Sweeping


Chicago utilizes mechanical street sweepers to remove debris and litter from streets. 

From April 1st through mid-November, bright orange temporary parking restrictions are posted at least 24 hours before sweeping service is scheduled to begin on any street to ensure curb-to-curb cleaning.  Some arterial streets have permanently posted signs that specify a once-per-week period when parking is prohibited for street sweeping. 

Residents can view street sweepers in real-time using the Sweeper Tracker online tool.
