The City of Santa Clarita will begin increasing the frequency of street sweeping throughout all areas of the City beginning Monday, October 25, 2010. Previously, areas were swept monthly, but will now be swept on a weekly basis during the fall.
The street sweeping will return to the monthly schedule on January 17, 2011. Street sweeping will take place every week between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Residents are asked to do their part to increase the effectiveness of the City wide street sweeping, by removing vehicles from the street during scheduled street sweeping days, keeping the street clear of lawn and tree trimmings, trash, and debris, and removing portable basketball courts from the streets.
“The street sweeping schedule will continue to provide the community with optimal sweeping services appropriate for the new season,” said Mayor Laurene Weste.
In addition, it is important that residents do not pile or stack leaves either in the street or in yards. All leafy debris should be placed in the green waste container supplied by the trash service provider. This is to ensure that the street sweeping equipment does not become plugged which would result in delays in the street sweeping service.
