Street Cleaning Resumes April 1

Yard Waste Street Cleaning.
Street cleaning resumes on Monday, April 1 for the 2024 season. Just like last year, vehicles will not be towed during street cleaning operations. However, it's essential for residents to move their vehicles according to the posted street cleaning schedule to ensure thorough cleaning of our City streets. Parking tickets of $50 will be issued to those who do not move their vehicles.

Cambridge residents can stay informed about their street cleaning schedule by signing up for email or text reminders. You can also access and download your complete street cleaning schedule for the year or import it into your digital calendar by visiting CambridgeMA.Gov/StreetCleaning.

Our City takes great pride in the effectiveness of our street cleaning efforts, which are designed to enhance the water quality of stormwater discharged to the Charles River and Alewife Brook. Regular cleaning helps keep catch basins free of sand and debris, ensuring they can function properly.

We also urge your continued support in collecting leaves from the sidewalk and curb in front of your home or business. Yard waste collection resumes on April 1, and your contributions in gathering leaves play a crucial role in preventing street flooding, minimizing stormwater pollution impacts, and reducing our collective environmental footprint.
