Dorchester Posted Street Sweeping Regulations - Changes April 2013


DORCHESTER POSTED STREET SWEEPING REGULATIONS
CHANGES SCHEDULED FOR APRIL 2013


 The Boston Public Works Department (PWD) will be implementing a new schedule of street sweeping days for much of the Dorchester neighborhood starting in April of 2013.

 Street Cleaning SignThe goal of the alterations is to provide mechanical street sweeping services to more closely follow your residential trash collection day.  Currently, posted mechanical street sweeping does not immediately follow the trash collection days in Dorchester.Street Cleaning Sign
  • PWD will change many of the street sweeping days in the neighborhood to more closely follow the collection schedule.  This will alleviate much of the litter generated by the weekly residential trash collection in a faster and more efficient manner.
  • This will affect the days of sweeping but not the vast majority of the current posted hours. 
  • The Boston Transportation Department will make the necessary changes over the Winter months to the posted sweeping signs on the affected streets to reflect the new street sweeping days which will begin in April of 2013.
  • PLEASE MAKE NOTE OF THE POSTED SIGNS INDICATING THE DAY FOR MECHANICAL SWEEPING ON YOUR STREET PRIOR TO APRIL 1, 2013.
  • Residents can assist by observing the posted regulations and following the guidelines for proper trash and recycling placement at curbside.  Residents can also register for street sweeping schedule notifications by accessing the KNOW TOW link at www.cityofboston.gov.
  • This effort is also being conducted over a two year period in 10 other neighborhoods across the City.

 The Boston Publics Works Department is continuing to explore more effective means of basic City service delivery in this challenging fiscal climate.
