South End’s Street Sweeping Program Expanded to Other Neighborhoods

Check your signs in March.

As the South End prepares for another year of its expanded street sweeping program, several other neighborhoods will implement changes pioneered in the South End this spring. 

In 2012, the South End was the first neighborhood to experiment with an expanded street sweeping schedule to include the months of December and March, pending weather conditions. 

This year, the program has expanded as of March 1st into the Beacon Hill neighborhood. 

“Keeping Boston clean has always been a top priority for my administration,” Mayor Thomas Menino said in a statement. “We’re always looking for ways to improve our operations and by aligning the street sweeping schedule to match weekly trash collection, we’re maximizing the potential of each program to keep our streets clean.”

Street sweeping during the months of December and March is weather and condition dependent and residents should sign up for “No Tow” alerts or check the City’s website for up-to-date information on sweeping schedules. read more
