The thousands of tons of debris collected by the street sweeping process is removed regularly from the DPW yard.
The Division ensures clean public ways through citywide mechanical street sweeping and more intensive street sweeping, sidewalk cleaning, and litter collection in city squares. Crews conduct regular power-washing of public area trash and recycling receptacles and operate a graffiti removal program. In recent years, increasing the number of recycling bins in public areas and continuing citywide rodent control efforts have been major priorities.
In addition to improving the cleanliness and appearance of streets, street cleaning also plays an important role in keeping local waterways clean. Learn more
