Street Cleaning

The Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation (DSS) have resumed their seasonal street sweeping schedule, which started last week and lasts through mid-November. DSS fleet of street sweepers help to keep streets clean and prevent dirt and debris from entering the sewer system - ultimately allowing for better drainage during a rain storm.

Residents are asked to be mindful of all temporary and permanent street sweeping parking restriction signage. To ensure curb-to-curbstreetcleaning, bright orange temporary parking restrictions are posted the day before sweeping service is scheduled to begin on anystreet. Some streets have permanent signage that specifies a once-per-week period when parking is prohibited for street sweeping.


Please take care to read all posted parking restriction signs and be aware that street cleaning signs take precedence over other posted signs on the street. On street cleaning days, the streets should be kept clear of vehicles from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.


Vehicles that violate street-sweeping restrictions will be issued a citation and possible tow.
