Philadelphia Street Sweeping Schedule
There are multiple ways to find your street sweeping schedule if you live in Philadelphia.
- 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 city page: https://www.phila.gov/programs/mechanical-street-cleaning/phase-2-pilot/
- 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.
