Regular street sweeping is an important city service that has multiple benefits. Removing debris from streets and gutters, and not letting it enter the storm drain system, reduces litter and pollution that would otherwise flow to the ocean, enhances the appearance of Glendale’s streets and neighborhoods, and decreases the chance of street flooding.
When the refuse collection day for your area immediately follows the scheduled street sweeping day, please do not place your refuse, recycling or yard trimmings containers out for collection prior to 2:00 p.m. on that prior day in order to avoid conflicts with the street sweeping vehicles.
You can also assist in keeping your streets clean by:
- Avoiding piling, sweeping or blowing leaves or other debris or litter in the street, alley or gutter;
- Keeping the street in front of your home dry on street sweeping days, as the sweepers are more effective when the street is dry;
- Keeping palm fronds or long branches out of the street, alley or gutter;
- Never pour oil, antifreeze, or any other hazardous material in the street, alley or gutter, or on the ground.
This map divides the City of Glendale into 49 street sweeping districts and indicates the day of the week when the district is swept and the whether it is swept on week one or two of a biweekly schedule.
