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

San Jose Street Sweeping Schedule

If you live in or around San Jose, there are multiple ways to find when the street sweeper will come to sweep your street

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

  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 to avoid getting a citation.
  2. If you live on a public street (and the city is responsible for sweeping it) you can find your sweep day by visiting this interactive Map: https://www.sanjoseca.gov/your-government/environment/recycling-garbage/residents/residential-services-lookup
  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.

  1. Why are LOUD leaf blowers blasting on Tuesdays at around 12:30AM? This is disturbing the peace. It has been happening for several weeks at 99 Vista Montana, San Jose, CA. Is the supervisor aware of this public disturbance?
    Please stop this immediately, so I don’t have to take this up the chain of command

    Thank you.
