Street and sidewalk cleaning and maintenance

Keeping our streets, sidewalks, and green spaces safe and clean for everyone to enjoy is a City priority. 

Our sanitation services branch and local non-profit organizations working under our Street Cleaning Grant Program, play an integral role in keeping our city clean, vibrant and thriving.

Our crews provide services 365 days a year, with the majority of work performed at night to avoid interrupting traffic and pedestrians.
