2013 Town-wide Fall Street Sweeping Begins November 5
The Public Works Department will begin the Town-wide fall street sweeping schedule on Tuesday, November 5 with route 1 (they will be testing sweeping equipment on Route 1, Nov. 4). Routes are generally swept sequentially, the last route being 35. Weather permitting, the fall sweep should conclude in mid-December or when snow fall makes it impossible to continue.
Please note, according to the Town bylaw, Prohibition Against Obstructing Public Ways, it is forbidden to deposit debris in public ways. To help us perform the best possible job, please park your cars off-street during your scheduled week. Parked cars prevent a clean sweep. The DPW will not return to sweep streets due to cars parked during the initial visit.
The Town will be updating the schedule below weekly (Mondays) until the fall sweep is completed.
Routes to Sweep week of 12/2: 12, 14, 15 and 16
Routes completed: 1-11
Routes remaining to sweep: 12-35
Above is the status of street cleaning by route number when a seasonal sweep is in progress. Planned routes for each week are subject to weather, staffing, and equipment integrity. Light rain does not affect sweeping operation. Barring any major weather events the process takes about 7 weeks.
To determine what route number your street is on, please find your street on the following list.

Please note that according to the Town bylaw, Title III, Article 1, Section 33. Prohibition Against Obstructing Public Ways, it is forbidden to throw, or cause to be placed or thrown, on to any public sidewalk, street, fire hydrant, or highway any snow, dirt, leaves, gravel, or foreign substance or material. Violations of this section shall be punishable by a fine of $25.00 per day if the material is not removed. It is OK to sweep sand, that had been used for winter road conditions, from sidewalks
(only) into streets for sweepers to pick up.
To help us perform the best possible job, please park your cars off-street during your scheduled week. Parked cars prevent a clean sweep. The DPW will not return to sweep streets due to cars parked during the initial visit.
Public Works will continue to sweep the Town's main roads on Thursday nights through out the sweeping seasons.
