Worcester Street Sweeping Schedule

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

  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 this city page: https://www.worcesterma.gov/streets/spring-street-sweeping
  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.
