City of Everett Street Sweeping Season Begins April 3

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  The City of Everett would like to remind residents that the 2023 street sweeping season will begin on Monday, April 3, 2023. With the change in seasons comes the annual street sweeping and clean-up effort by the City.

  Please be sure to check the signs on your street for parking restrictions in your neighborhood. Signs will note the parking restrictions in regard to hours and locations for your street. Adhering to these regulations will help you avoid the unnecessary cost and inconvenience of a violation and will help us ensure that our streets and stormwater run-off remain clean. Street sweeping is essential to eliminate issues and costs related to trash and debris getting into the underground sewage system.

  If there are any missing or damaged signs in your area, please notify the City by calling 311 or 617-394-2270 and report the street name and area so that they can be repaired or replaced.

  Please be aware that vehicles that do not comply with this ordinance may be subject to ticketing and towing. Please call 311 or 617-394-2270 with any questions. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
