Fall street sweeping begins Oct. 23
October 23 - November 20
Crews are preparing to sweep streets across Minneapolis to completely clean the streets before winter, and keep leaves and debris out of the storm drains and ending up in our lakes and rivers as much as possible. On Oct. 23, Minneapolis Public Works will begin a four-week run of curb-to-curb sweeping and leaf collection on 1,000 miles of streets throughout the city. Temporary “No Parking” signs will be posted at least 24 hours in advance so streets will be clear of cars when they’re swept.
Residents can visit minneapolismn.gov/streetsweeping to find out when the sweepers are coming through their neighborhoods. Street sweeping is explained in English, Hmong, Somali, and Spanish as part of the City’s “Did you know…” series of short videos that can be viewed at YouTube.com/cityofminneapolis and on Minneapolis City TV. Residents who have friends or neighbors who speak these languages are encouraged to share links to the videos.
