Good afternoon –
You may have heard about this, but I want to be sure you’re aware that a new street sweeping schedule will begin on April 1st. The entire City-wide NEW schedule can be viewed online now at www.redwoodcity.org/publicworks.
With the new schedule, any given neighborhood will be cleaned on the same identified day each month – for example, always the third Tuesday of the month, or the fourth Wednesday of the month, or the first Friday of the month, and so on.
- It’s easier for everyone to remember to move their vehicles off the street to make room for cleaning
- It makes for more efficient scheduling of the street sweeper.
- It ensures no conflicts with garbage and recycling pickup.
This year, to save on printing and postage and to be more green, the City will NOT be mailing out printed copies of the schedule. Instead, go to our Community GIS at www.redwoodcity.org/gis and click on “Search” then enter your address. General property information will appear on the right side of the screen, and near the bottom of that window will be your next upcoming street cleaning.
The new schedule will be included on GIS as of April 1 – until then, the existing schedule is displayed in GIS. You can view the upcoming schedule at www.redwoodcity.org/publicworks.
Have you checked out the Community GIS page? There, you will also note your street cleaning “District” (such as District 3B) – and by clicking on that link, you go to the appropriate street sweeping map and schedule for your neighborhood. If you want to see a map of all the street sweeping districts, go to the left side of the page, and under “Layers” click on “Other” and then check the box for Street Cleaning Districts.
As you know, street cleaning is performed once a month in residential neighborhoods to remove debris that may enter the storm drain system and San Francisco Bay, and to maintain a clean appearance of our roadways. REMEMBER: please move your vehicles from the curb and gutter on your monthly street cleaning day to allow the sweeper to clean in front of your home. Vehicles can be moved back to the curb once the sweeper has passed. When vehicles are not moved for street sweeping, the litter and debris will be an eyesore until the following months’ cleaning and, during the rainy season, can flow into the Bay.
