Tips to Help Us to Keep Things Running on Schedule...
  1. Sweeping operations are conducted from 7 AM to 3 PM. The street sweeping schedule and pertinent information is publicized a week ahead in the daily newspaper posted as indicated above, and on this website.

  2. This schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather. Should inclement weather prevent sweepers from working in your area as scheduled, they will return seven (7) days from the date originally scheduled.

  3. Remove all cars from the street on the day it will be swept, and encourage your neighbors to do the same. When necessary, any vehicles, which impede sweeping operations, may be ticketed or towed in accordance with city ordinances. Contact the Department of Public Works for additional information at (781) 268-8000

  4. Sidewalks may be swept into the gutter but large piles of leaves and debris will not be acceptable and will not be swept up.
