Street Sweeping
Schedule Change Effective March 2011
Street Sweeping Schedule - determine on which day your street will be cleaned.

Starting March 1, 2011 the day of street sweeping will change for many residential streets.

The City is making changes to the street sweeping schedule beginning in March 2011 in order to better serve all residential areas throughout Pleasant Hill.  The main priority is to ensure that city streets and storm drain systems are clean and functioning properly.

Street sweeping will continue in residential areas every other month or odd-numbered months, just as is currently being done:
  • Jan. 1
  • March 3
  • May 5
  • July 7
  • Sept. 7
  • Nov. 11

The following streets will continue to be swept two times each month: 
  • Morello Ave.
  • Putnam Blvd.
  • Patterson Blvd.
  • Boyd Rd.
  • Major arterials, such as Contra Costa Blvd., will continue to be swept four times each month

Starting March 2011, you will see the following two changes:
  • The day of the street sweeping schedule will change for many residential streets
  • All streets will be swept during the third week of the month.

The street sweeping contractor has verified that this new schedule will not conflict with Allied Waste collection days. 

Guidelines to Help Keep Your Street Clean
The City of Pleasant Hill's street sweeping program is funded by your local Stormwater Pollution Program to comply with the Federal Clean Water Act. Street sweeping removes pollutants before they drain into stormdrains, ditches, and creeks which eventually flow into San Francisco Bay untreated.

Please use these guidelines to help us keep your streets clean:
  • Please park your car off the street on your scheduled sweeping day. Sweeping around cars requires more time and is a dangerous maneuver
  • Keep your landscaping pruned back far enough to allow sweepers to sweep against the curb.
  • Keep tree branches pruned to a height of 14 feet above the street to allow safe passage of sweeper
  • Sweepers are not equipped to pick up large piles of leaves in the street
  • Private streets will not be swept by the City

If you see someone dumping into a storm drain, call 1 800 NODUMPING (1-800-663-8674). Record as much information about the incident and parties involved.

Help us reduce pollution and aid our street sweeping by removing vehicles, basketball backboards, garbage bags, and other obstructions on your sweeping day.
