Evanston Street Cleaning Schedule

- 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.
- If you live on a public street (and the city is responsible for sweeping it) you can find your sweep day by visiting this pdf map: https://www.cityofevanston.org/home/showpublisheddocument/35809/637807909560170000
