Street Sweeping


The Department of Streets and Sanitation sweep the city’s streets April through mid-November, weather permitting.

The city hangs bright orange temporary parking restrictions the day before sweeping service is scheduled to begin. Those who fail to move their vehicle between the restricted hours, between 9 am and 2 pm, will be eligible to receive a $60 ticket.

The street sweeping schedule is available to view on the map below. You can also click the brackets located in the top right-hand corner to open the map in Google Maps or by clicking here.

We The Sweeple (formerly Sweep Around Us) is a third-party website that allows Chicagoans to sign up for email notifications whenever street sweeping is scheduled on their street. The website pulls information from the publicly available street sweeping schedule on the Department of Streets and Sanitation's website. 

Simply visit, enter your address, and then sign up for email alerts so you don't inadvertently miss a scheduled street sweeping on your block.  Those who signed up for alerts in previous years will need to re-subscribe.
