DPW operates different street cleaning schedules for residential and business areas. Residential streets are swept once a week or twice per month between 8am and 2pm. Please use SFViewer to look up an address.
Please note, In 2008, DPW reengineered its Mechanical Sweeping Program.
In general, business streets are swept four times per week (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays) on one side of the street and three times per week on the other side (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays). They are swept between 6am and 8am. Additionally, sections of some business streets are swept seven days per week on both sides of the street between midnight and 6am. They include: (1) Embarcadero; (2) Mission Street; (3) Market Street; (4) North of Market; (5) Third Street; (6) Chinatown/North Beach; (7) Sixth Street; and (8) Van Ness/South Van Ness.
