The City has implemented a new street sweeping schedule effective in October.
Working together, we can keep our streets, drainage system, and water supply clean! Street sweeping is intended to prolong the life of the City’s street and drainage infrastructure by removing dirt, sand, and other contaminants from the roadway, which also helps the City’s storm drainage system. Although improved aesthetics and cleanliness can be added outcomes of sweeping, it is not intended to remove all fallen leaves in the streets.
The City sweeps the high-traffic streets within the City as well as the streets with mature trees and heavy leaves a minimum of once a month. These areas are reflected in the base list. For certain residential areas identified as potential high-leaf areas, the City provides an extra sweep per month during the months of December through March. These areas are reflected in the alternate list. To see the maps and schedules of the street sweeper, please click here: https://www.rosenbergtx.gov/326/Street-Sweeping
The efficacy of street sweeping is limited by the general condition of the roadway, and other obstacles such as parked cars, trash cans, etc. Sweepers cannot sweep around vehicles parked along the roadway. Residents are encouraged to remove vehicles parked along the street, and solid waste and recycling polycarts in a timely manner so that the sweeper may complete as efficient and effective a route as possible. Several street sweeping routes have been moved to different dates in an effort to accommodate the City’s twice-weekly solid waste collection schedule.
As a reminder, it is a violation of City ordinance to sweep or blow leaves or yard waste into the roadways. Yard waste is collected weekly through the City’s solid waste contractor on the first pick-up day, either Monday or Tuesday.
