DC Street Sweeping 2024 (Schedules, Maps, Holidays, Tickets)

Here you’ll find the Washington DC street sweeping schedule and related info… like the sweeping map, when holidays affect street sweeping, and what to do if you get a ticket.

DC is on the East Coast and is southwest of Baltimore and southeast of Pittsburgh.

If you live on or park near the border of DC and one of these other cities, make sure you check out the sweeping schedule for those cities too.

DC Street Sweeping Schedule

There are multiple ways to find your street sweeping schedule if you live in DC.

  1. Check the signage posted on your street. You’ll see white signs with red lettering describing when you must move your vehicle for street sweeping.
  2. If you live on a public street (and the city is responsible for sweeping it) you can find your sweep day by visiting https://dpw.dc.gov/service/street-sweeping-scheduled
  3. If you live in a private community, gated community, or homeowners association (HOA) then it’s likely that your street cleaning is performed by a private sweeping company (not the city). Contact your HOA representative to find out the schedule.

If there’s a change to the DC street sweeping schedule it’s a good idea to check if your trash pickup schedule has been impacted too. There’s a chance it may be on a different day because of a holiday or harsh weather.
